Artist, inventor and author, Rodney Frost is known for his woodworking books that encourage readers to experiment. With his most creative volume yet, he provides an introduction to the world of kinetic art - art that moves. Using plenty of informative sidebars and dynamic illustrations, Frost teaches the techniques in his own inimitable style, beginning with easy, fun projects like weather vanes and mobiles powered by air currents alone. Then it's on to simple toys you manipulate with strings and art mechanised by levers, cranks, cams and cogs. "Creative Kinetics" will inspire even the least craft-minded reader to pick up some scissors and turn a can into a propeller or cardboard into a jumping-jack.
