To Heath Robinson (William Heath Robinson) has come the rare honour of his name being adopted adjectivally – even those who have never seen his strangely complex drawings of ridiculous mechanical contraptions may describe an ill-thought out machine as a Heath Robinson device. He was also a gifted book illustrator, with editions of Arabian Nights and The Water Babies embellished by his work.
