To celebrate (and inform/remind you of) the widely-praised new book The Art of Rube Goldberg: (A) Inventive (B) Cartoon (c) Genius (edited by Jennifer George), I wanted to share a few images from the Rube Goldberg website’s Gallery and invite you to look around the page-of-wonders itself.

Enjoy some more cartoons that the man himself drew:
