William "Bill" Papas was a political cartoonist and caricaturist who worked for The Guardian, The Sunday Times and Punch. He grew up in South Africa to where his Greek father had emigrated, and studied at Johannesburg Art School, Beckenham School of Art and St. Martin's in London. Having worked as a cartoonist in South Africa, covering Nelson Mandela's trial for treason in 1958, he returned to Britain as a cartoonist and illustrator. He spent the 1970s living in Greece with his second wife Tessa Pares and they collaborated on Papas' Greece published in 1997, but which appears to be a different work from that offered here.
