Searle functioned in various capacities for Punch magazine throughout the 50s. I've posted his theatre caricatures, Searle's Eye View, political page and cover art. He also made cartoon spot illustrations for humorous stories and more realistic illustrations for reports.

I've been a huge Searle fan ever since I was given 'How To Be Topp' one Christmas in the late '60s. I find the continuing stream of rarities and oddments that you post in your blog fascinating. I hope there are many more to come.
