When I was away at school in the '80s my father sent me care packages. He might include an article or book he thought I'd like. Sometimes he sent a cartoon he drew himself.
They usually depicted some family tableau filtered through his unique perspective: he and my mom wintering in Florida or me returning home from school. He was very influenced by G.B. Trudeau's Doonesbury comic.
I don't remember the books and I didn't keep many of the articles. But those cartoons were priceless.
