Dear Clock Makers Friends: 
 
Greetings from Caracas - Venezuela and congratulations for maintain an interesting forum dedicated to the Clock design and construction. 
The reason of this message is to request from you help to find material about paper or cardboard clocks, specially pendulum or verge and foliot clocks models.
Any material that you can send me will be useful: Pictures, blueprints or plans, in PDF or JPGE files formats. 
What is the purpose of my petition? I’m trying to assembling a detailed cardboard clock model in a governable size and that’s really works.
Please send information to my e-mail: [email protected]
 
Anticipated thanks for the help that you may be able to offer me; all materials are well received; 
Greetings, 
J.P. Reinaldo

My first introduction to a paper clock was the cut-out book “Make Your Own Working Paper Clock” by James Smith Rudolf.  The ISBN number is 0-06-091066-6.  You can find it on Amazon here:

   http://www.amazon.com/Make-Your-Working-Paper-Clock/dp/0060910666/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-1000207-4136804?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1210603059&sr=8-1


There is a great, stop-frame animation on YouTube showing the assembly of this clock book.  You can see it here:

Have fun with your project!
A clock that, by natural motions alone, indicates regularly equal divisions of time.

—Mateo de Alimenis Campani (1678)

OK, Thanks to all for reply my message.
It´s very interesting information for me, and inspirating for design my model.
