Very Heath Robinson

Stories of His Absurdly Ingenious World

Adam Hart-Davis

Blending art and history, Adam Hart-Davis explores the technical and social background of Heath Robinson’s cartoons and the inspiration he found in developments such as high-rise living and the expanding transport network. Through 300 illustrations this volume highlights the humour with which the artist addressed issues such as achieving domestic bliss, keeping up appearances, and staying warm at the seaside, before turning attention to sport, industrial practices and travel.
