The son of an illustrator, and the brother of famous illustrators Thomas Heath Robinson and William Heath Robinson, he spent his early education at the Highbury School of art. Robinson then went on to serve a seven-year apprenticeship at Waterlow and Sons (a lithographic printers in Finsbury). He also took art lessons in the evenings.  In 1892, Robinson won a place at the Royal Academy, but was unable to take it up due to lack of finances.


"Off with her head!"



The rabbit took a Watch out of his Waistcoat.

She took down a jar from one of the shelves as she passed.

"Please, Ma'am, is this New Zealand or Australia?"

Alice ventured to taste it.

She tried her best to climb up one of the legs of the table.

It was as much as she could do...to look through.

It was the White Rabbit returning splendidly dressed.

"And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!"

She was up to her chin in salt water.

"O Mouse, do you know the way out of this pool?"

They all sat down at once, in a large ring.

"I beg you pardon," said Alice very humbly.

"Ahem!" said the Mouse, with an important air.

It was very uncomfortable.

Bill was in the middle, being held up by two guinea-pigs, who were giving it something out of a bottle.

An enormous puppy was looking down at her.

Quietly smoking a large hookah.

"It isn't," said the Caterpillar.

Alice folded her hands, and began.

"And yet you incessantly stand on your head."

"You turned a back-somersault in at the door."

She streched her arms round it.

She was shrinking rapidly.

All she could see ... was an immense length of neck.

A large pigeon had flown into her face.
