Art Books - Heath Robinson

Here for your delectation are two large books on Heath Robinson’s life and work. and a large format paperback, Men That Might Have Been that I acquired back in the early 1970s. I discovered the work of Heath Robinson some years previous to these publications and was at the time charmed by his eccentric machines and humorous cartoons.


The following picture is one of my favourites – it’s so absurd it makes me laugh every time I look at it.


Heath Robinson sounds as if he’d have been a great guy to know and he liked cats. Here is a photo of Heath Robinson and his cat called Saturday Morning from the book Heath Robinson - Artist & Comic Genius.


And The Men That Might Have Been...
