The first issue of Automata Magazine appeared at the beginning of 2019. The publication was started by Marc Horovitz, himself a builder of automata. He felt that that a single, focused, online source of information that contained in-depth material about all aspects of this arcane subject was lacking.
Since its inception, the publication has been well received and has grown steadily in readership. Articles (a small sampling of which can be downloaded below below) on every aspect of this relatively unknown art form have been published, written by well over 100 knowledgeable and experienced authors and artists from around the world.
Our team is enthusiastic and excited to bring you hard information about automata, their construction, history, function and more.
Examples of types of article
Automata Magazine presents articles on every aspect of the automata world. Below are some example articles from past issues that you can download or read online. These are just a few of the possible categories.
How-to and construction articles are an excellent way to show how automata go together. Federico Tobon shows how to build a simple automaton in this story.
