This is exactly why Adult Science magazine has such a following: along with the latest edition of the stunning full-color journal come the charming, hand-turned Bird Organ.
These diminutive music boxes were a cherished ornament in the drawing rooms of ladies in 18th century France and now can have a place in yours too. Simply scroll the punch card through the organ to coax a tune of chirping canaries through the pipes.
Did we mention you get to construct it yourself? That is the beauty of Adult Science, by leading you through the construction process you learn everything you need to know about how these fascinating contraptions work. Included in the kit is all the bits you need to make the hand-turned bird organ, as well as tools for crafting song punch cards.
Meanwhile the magazine offers a look at the history and making of organs in exquisite detail, the perfect coffee table magazine for the modern drawing room.
