Contents of the CD
Contained on the CD disc is a collection of out-of-print books whose pages have been scanned and compiled in PDF format. The books on the disc are illustrated by the Robinson brothers, Charles (1870–1937) and William Heath Robinson (1872-1944). Who can not but love the clear line drawings and soft watercolour illustrations of these two brothers and the dreamlike aesthetic which transports whoever has beauty receptors in their souls straight to paradise for at least one little moment. They were a big part of the Golden Age of Book Illustration in England at and around the turn of twentieth century, not least because of their originality and the enormous number of books they colored and decorated. The Robinsons were a family of London illustrators. Charles a nd William were the best known but Thomas illustrated numerous books as well. This family were workers and grafters; they served long apprentice ships to their crafts and went to school if the money stretched. From the size of their output it is doubtful if they saw many idle days in their lives. How these brothers could contain such an abundance of magical dimension under their hideously normal haircuts might be a mystery to those not fortunate enough to have known the days of nondescript artists, mad poets and individualist philosophers who worked hard for a living yet constantly sought excellence and endeavoured to capture in their art all what was sublime in everyday life. I’ve always been grateful to them for what they gave and still give. The brothers had similarities in their styles and approaches as would be expected, but were also uniquely different. William Heath Robinson always had a quirkiness and as time went by indulged it more and more. Later he produced a lot of drawings and illustrations full of innocent whimsy which no doubt amused himself and his readers no end; indeed some people nowadays seem unaware that he did anything else. None of these are included on this CD. The selection of Illustrated Books on this CD is the first time that a substantial body of the work of the Robinson brothers has been offered to the public in one package. I hope you enjoy these wonderful works and offer here below a gallery of some of the images from the Books.
