If you saw the movie Hugo then the next step is to read the book. Yes, The Invention of Hugo Cabret is considered a children's book but worth the quick read. In that book you will discover that Brian Selzneck got the idea from Edison's Eve by Gaby Wood. I enjoyed the book with all the background on automatons and of course Georges Méliès.
