Description

Mike Peyton is the world's most famous nautical cartoonist - the Matt or Giles of the sailing world. This is his authorised biography, complete with many of his iconic cartoons, written by Dick Durham - ex "Fleet Street" journalist, "Yachting Monthly's" features editor and Mike's lifelong friend. Dick romps through Mike's life, from his early schoolboy sketches to being seconded by the intelligence corps during World War Two to draw maps of the North African deserts, from there running a PoW newspaper, and, back in the UK, going on to work as a freelance cartoonist on as diverse titles as the Church of England, Times and Corsetry, & Underwear. Sympathetic, entertaining and insightful, this is the long-deserved biography of a man who has dominated the nautical humour scene for well over seven decades.
