W. Heath Robinson: Stocking Stuffers

Here's a fine watercolor illustration by W. Heath Robinson. It shows the correct way to stuff a stocking.

Note:  I'm not sure where I found this image; perhaps it was from a Chris Beetles exhibition.

A previous blog post on how the inventive W. Heath Robinson envisioned the search for Halley's Comet at Greenwich Observatory may be seen here. That one was definitely from Chris Beetles. Like most dealers, he does not maintain an online archive of past sales. The internet gets more exciting all the time, but wonderful things disappear from it forever every day as well.

All of my Christmas posts may be rediscovered here.

Today marks two and a half years of blogging for me. There is no need to send a congratulatory telegram.
