Heath Robinson Masterpieces of Art Hardback
by Susan Grange
Part of the Masterpieces of Art series
Illustrator and cartoonist W. Heath Robinson is renowned for his ingenious and haphazard contraptions.
His witty drawings of complicated machines, are ironically designed to simplify everyday life, but always manage to make everything appear more complicated!
His work is steeped in the humour of calamity and his name soon became synonymous for absurd and makeshift devices.
This delightful new book is packed with his madcap designs and the delicate watercolour illustrations which continue to delight us all today.
