Movable Illustration is Back

April 29, 2012 by · 4 Comments 

We now have this book back in stock. Automata – Movable Illustration by Aquio Nishida. Imported from Japan, this is a delightful book from automata maker and director of the Contemporary Toy museum of Japan, Aquio Nishida. There are plenty of drawings and photographs. The text is in Japanese with only partial English translations. However it’s still of great interest to the automata enthusiast and contains many examples of Mr Nishida’s work along with his ideas, tips and plans for making automata.
