Can we have more books like this published?

Given the amount of time and work Carlos and his publisher have into the book, the price of $20 - $25 or so for the book is very reasonable. I quickly joined the print queue and can't wait to flip through its pages!

I hope more people will buy this book and others that may come out to support our automata artists and the automata community.
