The Illustrated Letters of Richard Doyle to His Father, 1842–1843
By Richard Doyle
· Edited by Grant F. Scott
Before he joined the staff of Punch and designed its iconic front cover, illustrator Richard “Dicky” Doyle was a young man whose father (political caricaturist John Doyle) charged him with sending a weekly letter, even though they lived under the same roof.
