I actually picked this particular book up more for the illustrations, which are pretty good. I did a little searching and it turns out that Roy Doty is a pretty well respected and award-winning cartoonist who is still drawing. Also, you can pick up a new copy of this book on Amazon for $82.13. Which is a lot more than the 20 cents I got it for at the thrift shop.
Every time I sort through my pens and such I try to make a drawing with all of them. Check out some previous scribblings here.
