`I really have a secret satisfaction in being considered rather mad.'
The name of William Heath Robinson has entered the national vocabulary as a by-word for eccentric inventions and makeshift solutions - and with good reason. His world of cogs, bits of string, magnets and precarious tipping points holds a universal appeal.
In this classic collection, Heath Robinson leads a life of leisure, taking a look at some of our favourite pastimes. Seaside holidays, dinner parties with the neighbours and dancing classes are all reimagined and given the Heath Robinson touch in a bid to make them just that little bit easier - whether they needed it or not.
