Some of the outstanding illustrators and artists of the day were recruited to provide images for the novels, often producing illustrations at short notice for forthcoming chapters. Dickens's first writing commission was to provide text for prints by Robert Seymour (1800-1836), who created the first set of images for what became The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (1837). After Seymour's suicide, the set was developed by the illustrator Hablot Knight Browne (1815-1882), who adopted the pseudonym 'Phiz' to match Dickens's 'Boz'.
