The quintessential illustrator of British quirks casts his gaze on the nation's sporting efforts - plus a number of purely invented and completely impossible sports from Heath Robinson's unique imagination. Heath Robinson's sense of absurdity appeals across the generations. His love of ludicrous contraptions and genius for the fantastical continues to inspire, from the creaky props on old Dr Who to the world of Wallace and Gromit.

'How to Live in a Flat', if posed as a question, is worth asking today with so many articles on tiny flats with hugely inflated price tags in the newspapers. Flat-dwellers were faced with very similar problems in 1936. During 1932 and 1933 Heath Robinson had drawn a series of cartoons for 'The Sketch' entitled ‘Flat Life’, which depicted various gadgets designed to make the most of the limited space available in the contemporary flat. It was this series of drawings that provided K. R. G. Browne and W. Heath Robinson with the inspiration for their first full-length book together. It was called 'How to Live in a Flat' and, as well as greatly extending the original ideas showing many ingenious ways of overcoming the problems caused by lack of space in flats and bungalows, the book also provided much fun at the expense of the more extreme designs in thirties furniture and architecture. The book was published for Christmas 1936 and was well received. 'How to Live in a Flat' is surprisingly relevant to life in Britain in 2014. In fact, several of Heath Robinson’s space-economising solutions have been used in practice to maximise the use of space in small flats. We have beds that fold down from wardrobes fully-made and ready to sleep in, communal rubbish shoots, central heating and multi-purpose furniture. So Heath Robinson was way ahead of his time and reading 'How to Live in a Flat' may spark other innovative solutions to making life bearable in a tiny twenty-first century home! If, in addition to being a flat-dweller (perhaps in a garden flat), you are also married with a car and you play golf then you will find much to amuse and inform you in our other titles by Heath Robinson and K. R. G. Browne: • How to be a Perfect Husband • How to Make a Garden Grow • How to be a Motorist • Humours of Golf All our Heath Robinson titles include a Foreword by Geoffrey Beare, Trustee of the William Heath Robinson Trust, who is working to build a Heath Robinson museum in North London.

Humours Of Golf

First published in 1923, 'Humours of Golf' by William Heath Robinson was created from the golfing illustrations he drew for 'The Bystander' magazine. In addition to these cartoons, Heath Robinson made a number of small line drawings on golfing subjects that were added at intervals through the book. There are several allusions to contemporary events, fashions and inventions in his illustrations that provide added interest today but, for many, it is Heath Robinson’s quirky characterisation of ‘a good walk spoiled’ that will give the most pleasure. Heath Robinson didn't play golf himself but he was obviously a shrewd observer of the game and its players. Heath Robinson gently pokes fun at many aspects of golf and golfers in this book. We are all familiar with jibes about the clothes golfers wear, the challenges of maintaining a golf course when nature is determined to undermine (sometimes literally!) the greenkeeper’s efforts, and the frustrations of a difficult lie, and there are illustrations on all these topics. However, as was his wont, Heath Robinson also provides lots of ideas for practical solutions and gadgets to help golfers overcome the many challenges they face on the course. Among many others, he proposes: • the telescopic putter to save the legs; • the golfer’s safety hat; • a patent putter with adjustment for levelling out worm casts; • and plus fives and minus fours. Heath Robinson’s 'Humours of Golf' gives so much to so many – entertainment, history and practical advice for enthusiastic golfers. As we have now made it available as an ebook you can read it on your ereader or smart phone while you are waiting to tee off. To golfers who are also married flat-dwellers with a garden and a car we offer our other ebook titles by Heath Robinson: • How to Live in a Flat • How to be a Perfect Husband • How to Make a Garden Grow • How to be a Motorist All our Heath Robinson titles include a Foreword by Geoffrey Beare, Trustee of the William Heath Robinson Trust, who is working to build a Heath Robinson museum in North London.
