Description

`I really have a secret satisfaction in being considered rather mad.' The name of William Heath Robinson has entered the national vocabulary as a by-word for eccentric inventions and makeshift solutions - and with good reason. His world of cogs, bits of string, magnets and precarious tipping points holds a universal appeal. Whacky machines and bemusing solutions to everyday problems are brought to life in this hilarious collection of cartoons from Heath Robinson. From wart removers to potato peelers to an early version of the holiday selfie, this much-loved classic illustrator and would-be inventor shows us that there really can be a gadget for everything!
