The Art of Rube Goldberg


Rube Goldberg was a Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, inventor of convoluted yet weirdly-brilliant machines—like Professor Butts and the Self-Operating Napkin—a humorist, sculptor, author and engineer. Loaded with never-before-seen essays, letters, memorabilia, patents and rare photos, “The Art of Rube Goldberg” is a brilliant compilation of his wide body of work luminously edited by his grandaughter Amy from a career spanning nearly three-quarters of a century.
