How To Make Paperclip Tops Booklet
« on: April 17, 2013, 04:20:41 PM »

This is just to inform the beautiful and wonderful ta0 community that I have produced a booklet on how to make paperclip tops. You can find this on amazon.com it's simply called "HOW TO MAKE PAPERCLIP TOPS"

www.amazon.com/dp/148405010X

kindle version
http://www.amazon.com/How-make-paperclip-tops-ebook/dp/B00CLY1YUS/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1367952437&sr=1-1-spell

Description: Inside you will find a new hobby. The instructions are written on real paper with pencil, and have been printed here from the originals. The idea is to show young individuals the possibilities when we simply place a pencil on paper to express an idea. This will become clear as they progress in creating their own toys, which is a poetic exercise in balance, developing an expertise from a hobby.

 :o A 42 page book on how to make paper clip tops!  Wow! I guess I need to get it for my spintop library!  Next time I order something from Amazon I'll add it to the order and take advantage of the free shipping.

The LOOK INSIDE shows the first page and I think I read copyright 2011.  Were you planing to type it one day or you always planned to make it a handwritten book?

I have only seen one way of making paper clip tops.  With a 42 page book can I assume that more ways than one are shared?

The hand writing is intended to show young people that this old fashioned way of expressing ideas is still valid. If you have any questions feel free to shoot to me here!

Ordered it.  But I may not receive it until July as I combined it with a book on the history of Magic that is on pre-order and free shipping may mean that they ship together  ::)

Hey, xINFINITELIGHTx , I have seem many a name, but I have not seen many an ip  ;)

Excellent use of words sir. I am the guy in the Raymonds videos holding the camera. I have a facebook page separate from Raymond to prove I'm a different person. www.facebook.com/jimmy.ellisx

Excellent perception of things. I could see how you could get suspicious on that. But I'm a legit second person. Have a blessed day everybody!

Ray here, thanks for ordering my booklet. Don't know a whole lot about Amazon's shipping, but most people have been receiving my books in two days. I have written some sci-fi novels besides my paperclip top booklet.
My buddy Jimmy has already responded to the ip question. We use the same computer at school, or more accurately, sometimes he is so much faster typing than me, he's answering things for me while logged in, and vice versa while I'm logged in.

I finally received the booklet and read most of it.  The book clearly shows that you love your unusual hobby of 30 years. Congrats!

The book got me in the mood of making some paperclip tops! I don't know if I'll make everyone (specially those you list as "extremely hard") but it could be a good challenge.  It is great that you added detailed steps in balancing them. 

I don't know if I agree with the idea of making it a handwritten book.  It does make it original. But, although your hand-write is probably better than mine it is still not the best, what makes the reading a little laborious. Also, if you wanted to make corrections you would have to replace at least one whole page. For example, I caught very few misspellings but you do write the word "pivot" as "pivit" and that word appears several times in almost every page.

I know what I will be doing tomorrow at my desk during breaks . . .
