by Heath Robinson
a shallow review
I’ve just finished looking at the lovely illustrations in Heath Robinson’s Contraptions. It is a visually splendid book and was delightful to browse through. Now, I will not claim to have read this book. In actual fact – I can’t recall reading anything other than the captions to his illustrations.
There are some books where upon first reading them you don’t want to experience text. The images in their own right will tell you about the illustrator. At least, a well designed book who’s graphic designer leans more towards information design, will give you an appreciation of the journey or story.
