World Of Peyton - Mike Peyton
Our Ref: KHHIS5133
Mike Peyton drew his first cartoon in 1942. At the time he ws interned in a German prisoner of war camp and the cartoon appeared in a newspaper run by and for his fellow prisoners. Seventy years later Mike has had to put the cap back on his pen permanently as failing eyesight has prevented him from drawing any more cartoons for the Yachting Monthly Confessional column for which he has become so well loved in recent years.
Having provided illustrations for magazines as varied as the Church of England Times and Corsetry & Underwear, Mike beame best known for cartoons relating to his first love, yachting, and, as he will happily point out, he had a boat before he had a car! To celebrate his career Adlard Coles Nautical presents this hilarious retrospective of the very best of Mikes cartoons from the last eight decades, a colection that will bring a smile to the face of even the most rain-sodden sailor stuck in his marina berth for another week supposedly in summer.
When yachting jounalist Dick Durham wrote Mikes biography, he call Mike 'the world greatest yachting cartoonist' and this book shows why; witty, wise and well-executed, Mikes lively, perceptive and highly distinctive cartoons will speak to anyone who has ever taken to the water.
