From John H. White, Totland:

I do miss Rupert Besley’s cartoons in the CP!

Would it be possible to bring out a book containing, say, 100 of the best ones?

They could be selected by a team consisting of the artist and yourself. If you act now, you could have the book on sale by Christmas. I myself would certainly buy more than one copy.

By the way, some years ago, when on holiday in the Scottish Highlands, I came across some comic postcards by Rupert Besley. So he certainly gets around!

Editor’s footnote: We miss Rupert Besley too but he has now retired, however you’re in luck, Mr White, as there are two books of Besley cartoons currently available in the County Press office, priced at just £1. Perfect for stocking fillers!
