Dug North, Kircher Society Resident Automatist

I consider it an honor and privilege to have recently been bestowed with a title.

I have been named Kircher Society Resident Automatist by the esteemed members of The Proceedings of the Athanasius Kircher Society.

For the unfamiliar, here is some information about the fascinating Athanasius Kircher and the mission of The Society chartered to perpetuate his inquisitive spirit.

My first official duty has been to compile a list of books essential to those interested in automata. The Society has just published the list of essential automata books here.

Each book is listed in the standard format for MLA citations and includes my short description of the work. While not exhaustive, I believe it embodies a well-rounded education in the art, science, and history of automata.

Visit the Kircher Society Essential Library of Automata.

Congrats! You deserve more for all your work in promoting the art of automata-making. I hope one day automata-makers - hobbyist and professional- will have their own society or club to promote this art in a more organized manner.
