It's a short excerpt (where they struggle to get my name right) of the first Homemade Camera Zine No.1, which is available as a pdf from here ...

but can also be pre-ordered as a print version from CameraDactylfor $10 +pp. European buyers should select the postal option carefully as the total is $23.

It's very interesting how hobbyists are doing really creative things with photography. This is one of the positive sides of the Internet, allowing people to share ideas and creations.

"Mr. Garden," how did you make those brass knobs for your camera?

Yeah - they definitely messed up on the last name.

The knobs are made up of machine nuts and bolts and a judicious selection of brass tubing sizes I picked up from a craft shop. With lashings of Araldite Metal they've held together very well. :D

I wish I can take a closer look of the first link but images are not correctly loaded.
The others are really interesting, thank you, Sandeha, one more time :)

Thank you for the info, Sandeha. I've been following your work on Flickr, and it has inspired me to hang on to that A16 back from my short foray into Hasselblad territory, for incorporating into either a pinhole camera, or something more conventional.
