Heath Robinson: How to Be a Perfect Husband

Heath Robinson How To Be A Perfect Husband [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Heath Robinson: How to Be a Perfect Husband by W. Heath Robinson,K. R. G. Browne Book Resume:

What makes a perfect husband? In this tongue-in-cheek guide, illustrated by Heath Robinson's inimitable cartoons and contraptions, there are many charmingly old-fashioned tips for how to succeed in almost all aspects of married life. First published in 1937, this delightful book gives an insight into how the roles of both wife and husband were viewed at the time and pokes gentle fun at them both.The perfect husband presses his own trousers; he can tend the lawn and entertain the baby simultaneously by means of two simple attachments to the garden roller; he can peel onions behind his back, with the help of a mirror, and thus avoid tears; he can make a vacuum cleaner and he even has a device to help him climb the stairs silently after a late night out with the boys. When offered the choice of a glass of milk or a Manhattan, he will choose the former.With chapters on courtship and proposal, the wedding, early married life, bringing up children, sports and hobbies, domestic difficulties and middle age, this book makes a highly amusing gift for those who are considering tying the knot or wish to celebrate wedded bliss.

How to be a Perfect Husband by William Heath Robinson Book Resume:

First published in 1937, 'How to be a Perfect Husband' is the second book in the 'How to...' series. From finding a wife to growing old together, Heath Robinson and K.R.G. Browne explore many aspects of married life with witty and insightful text and illustrations. Heath Robinson received much teasing from his family about this choice of subject. However, looking back over his cartoons one finds that romance and courtship had been among his most frequently chosen subjects, from early 'Cupid' cartoons to such pictures as 'The Coquette' and 'Stolen Kisses' which were reproduced in 'Absurdities' in 1934.'How to be a Perfect Husband' reflects the great changes that took place in the marital relationship between the wars. The authors' gentle humour pokes fun at the challenges faced by men due to the depression, a lack of servants and the newly confident 'modern' woman. Of course, housework without servants also made life very difficult for women, until the invention of the washing machine and vacuum cleaner in the 1930s meant that things became a little easier. This too is reflected in the illustrations as Heath Robinson demonstrates his considerable talent for devising imaginative solutions to every-day problems in the home. For example, he offers us his take on a super-de-luxe coffee maker (that looks a lot like a complex twenty-first century expresso machine), a method of frittering a banana using electricity and various gadgets to help with childcare. Ultimately, the authors conclude that tolerance, compromise and being helpful are key characteristics of a perfect husband, if only to ensure that he can 'earn a reputation for thoughtfulness that will stand him in good stead whenever he wishes to touch his mother-in-law for a fiver'!If, in addition to being a perfect spouse, you also love gardening (even though you live in a flat), you have 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 Live in Flat How to Make a Garden Grow How to be a Motorist Humours of GolfAll 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.

How to be a Motorist

Heath Robinson How To Be A Perfect Husband [Pdf/ePub] eBook

How to be a Motorist by William Heath Robinson Book Resume:

In 1935 the driving test became compulsory for anyone wishing to hold a British driving licence and a rite of passage for adults, young and old alike, was established. It was just a few years later, in 1939, that William Heath Robinson collaborated with K.R.G. Browne to publish a book entitled How to be a Motorist. No doubt inspired by the scenes of the motoring masses - there were over 2 million vehicles on the road by then - and their resultant antics and madness, Heath Robinson addresses all aspects of motoring, from selecting a car through to etiquette on the highway. He explains, aided by numerous amusing illustrations, how the car works, undertaking simple repairs and how to go about touring the continent in your car, perhaps with your caravan attached.Heath Robinson's extraordinary imagination also shows itself in his clever solutions to the every-day problems that the motorist encountered in the 1930s. Often employing the creative use of string, we have gadgets for testing front axle springs, braking efficiency and for helping learner drivers. We are offered inventions for protecting the tyres, dealing with punctures and for negotiating roundabouts. It is interesting and fun to see how many of the problem-solving gadgets identified by Heath Robinson have actually been developed today by modern motor manufacturers: for example, all-terrain vehicles, devices for diagnosing engine trouble and driving simulators for practising your motoring skills.If, in addition to being a great driver, you also love gardening (even though you live in a flat), you play golf and you are married, then you will find much to amuse and inform you in our other titles by Heath Robinson and K. R. G. Browne: How to Live in Flat How to Make a Garden Grow How to be a Perfect Husband Humours of GolfAll 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

Heath Robinson How To Be A Perfect Husband [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Humours of Golf by William Heath Robinson Book Resume:

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.

How to Make a Garden Grow

Heath Robinson How To Be A Perfect Husband [Pdf/ePub] eBook

How to Make a Garden Grow by William Heath Robinson Book Resume:

The origins of 'How to Make a Garden Grow' lie in an article in 'The Strand' Magazine called 'A Highly Complicated Science'. The science referred to was that of gardening and the article by K. R. G. Browne was accompanied by nine of Heath Robinson's drawings, all of which were subsequently used in their book for the How To... series. Much of the subject matter for this book was drawn from Heath Robinson's earlier cartoons. For example, among his earliest work for 'The Sketch' was a series of drawings on the practicalities of gardening. This included a picture of 'root pruning' showing the gardener tunnelling down to the roots of a plant to prune them. Although the earlier drawing is much more elaborate, the idea is the same as that presented in 'How to Make a Garden Grow'.Gardening was a very popular hobby in the 1930s. It was a good way to save on food bills, start-up costs were low and the work was healthy - all concerns for the British during the depression years. Heath Robinson's satirical cartoons and K. R. G. Browne's humorous text gently poke fun at contemporary gardeners and their foibles and furbelows. We see design schemes for gardens to suit all types of gardeners, concerned gardeners diligently tending a sick plant and ideas for games that can be played at garden parties. Above all though are the wonderful Heath Robinson gadgets, doohickeys and gizmos designed to help the earnest gardener deal with the many challenges of gardening. How do you avoid spraying the neighbours when trying to get rid of greenfly? What is the best way to trap earwigs or to keep cats off your vegetable patch? Heath Robinson has the answer.Heath Robinson and Browne don't claim to be gardening experts but in 'How to Make a Garden Grow', as in all the How to... books, they have expertly captured both the spirit of their time and the essence of what it was (and in many ways still is) to be British. Look no further for advice on gardening - this book has it all neatly summed up in the most entertaining way. If you are also a married flat-dweller who has a car and plays golf (as many of us are) 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 Live in a Flat How to be a Motorist Humours of GolfAll our Heath Robinson titles include a Foreword by Geoffrey Beare, Trustee of the William Heath Robinson Trust, which is working to build a Heath Robinson museum in North London.

How to Live in a Flat

Heath Robinson How To Be A Perfect Husband [Pdf/ePub] eBook

How to Live in a Flat by William Heath Robinson Book Resume:

'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.

The Art of William Heath Robinson by Geoffrey C. Beare,William Heath Robinson Book Resume:

In the 1930s, William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) was known as "the gadget king" and he is still most widely remembered for his wonderfully humorous drawings and illustrations of highly ingenious contraptions. This book includes over a hundred of his original works. Robinson's ambition was to become a landscape painter but he was forced to follow his brothers into book illustration, where his reputation was rapidly established. The creator of inimitable illustrations for poetry by Poe and Kipling, Andersen's Fairy Tales, A Midsummer Night's Dream, de la Mare's Peacock Pie, The Water Babies, and Perrault's Fairy Tales, he is ranked alongside Rackham and Dulac, achieving classic status around the world. He is also loved for the children's books that he both wrote and illustrated, The Adventures of Uncle Lubin and Bill the Minder.
