Description
How does hypnosis work? What is chocolate really made of? And what do crocodiles eat for lunch? Rediscovered and revivified here in color, this is a collection of 125 entertaining and off-the-wall cartoons by Tim Hunkin, which originally appeared in black and white in London's Sunday Observer magazine from 1973 to 1987. The writer, cartoonist, and inventor who created the Discovery Channel program The Secret Life of Machines, Hunkin squeezes a wealth of weird and wonderful information into each intricately drawn comic strip, as well as crazy tricks and practical experiments.
