Each chapter has a brief summary of the topic in question -- say tools and materials. Next, each chapter moves on to showcase the work of two or three automata artists with many pictures and a page or two of information about each artist.
The photographs of automata in this book are outstanding. You can really get a sense for the devices, their construction, and most especially, their finishes.
If you love automata, want to see more of them, and want to learn about some of the top automata artists in the contemporary scene, this book is a must-have.

Beautifully written and illustrated. Love the various artists and styles covered - really broad.Published 6 months ago by Zillustration DotCom
I bought this hoping it would have some plans for wood projects. It has no plans and so I was disappointed and returned it. I would give it 5 stars as a coffee table art book.Published on November 22, 2013 by Zapped
I think I expected more, but upon reflection I realized that there was more than enough information for me to take it where I wanted it to go.Published on April 24, 2013 by I. Labrant
