Here’s another wonderful illustration by the brilliant George Cruikshank (1792-1878). This one portrays twelve characters, including Mr. Punch. Published by the Illustrated London News on December 30, 1843, the print is entitled “Twelfth Night Characters.” The reverse shows a poem wherein each character is described.
