Heath Robinson: Britain At Play

Ed. Geoffrey Beare, Heath Robinson

Although famous as 'The Gadget King', Heath Robinson produced humorous illustrations on many more themes than the peculiar contraption. Taken from publications such as The Bystander, The Sketch and The Humorist, these drawings (c.1912–1939) bring together some of his favourite subjects – golf, motoring, winter sports, holidays and courting – all brilliantly observed, however surreal the scenario, and featuring the occasional gadget. Edited, with an introduction by Geoffrey Beare.
