Robots on the BEA Show Floor

Missing BEA this year? GalleyCat prowled the floor of BookExpo America this week, collecting pictures of some of the more creative displays lining the exhibition hall.

Above, you can see Workman’s cardboard robot, promotion for the upcoming Recycled Robots by Robert Malone.

Check it out: “Robots and kids: a perfect combination. From R2-D2 to the Transformers to WALL-E, robots are a source of endless fascination. Now comes an irresistible book and kit that shows how to make ten different robots—that move—out of the most ordinary things from around the house. By delivering an experience that’s so much richer than putting together a model, this book gets to the essence of creativity and imaginative problem-solving and shows how to be an inventor, designer, and engineer all in one.”

Black Dog & Rosenthal’s promotion for My Bookstore: Writers Celebrate Their Favorite Places to Browse, Read, and Shop, which comes out in November.
