Heath Robinson: How to Live in a Flat Summary

Heath Robinson: How to Live in a Flat by W. Heath Robinson

W. Heath Robinson is best known for his hilarious drawings of zany contraptions, though his work ranged across a wide variety of topics covering many aspects of British life in the decades following the First World War. Starting out as a watercolour artist, he quickly turned to the more lucrative field of book illustration and developed his forte in satirical drawings and cartoons. He was regularly commissioned by the editors of Tatler and The Sketch and in great demand from advertising companies. Collections of his drawings were subsequently published in many different editions and became so successful as to transform Heath Robinson into a household name, celebrated for his eccentric brand of British humour. The perfect antidote to the estate agent's property description, this book, with illustrations by Heath Robinson and a witty commentary by K.R.G. Browne, shows you how to prove there is room to swing a cat in your living-room and offers many inventive space-saving solutions, such as the 'Combination Bath and Writing Desk for Business Men', the 'Bed Dining-table' and the 'Dresser-Piano'.
