Pickwick Papers Illustrations

Pickwick began with illustrations by Robert Seymour. After completing illustrations for the second monthly installment, Seymour committed suicide. The search began for a new illustrator and Robert W. Buss was hired. The Buss illustrations for the third monthly installment did not please Dickens or his publishers and another artist, Hablot Knight Browne was hired. Browne took the nickname Phiz to complement Dickens' Boz and the two became fast friends. Phiz went on to illustrate Dickens' works for 23 years.
