Maggie Browne WANTED - A KING. Lewis Carroll Alice in Wonderland parody 1891 6th Thousand, illustrated  in black & white by Harry Furness Published by Cassell

Furness's most famous humorous drawings were published in Punch, for which he started working in 1880, and to which he contributed over 2,600 drawings. He left Punch in 1894 when its owners discovered that he had sold one of his 'Punch' drawings for use in an advertising campaign.

He illustrated Carroll's novel Sylvie & Bruno in 1889 and 1893. Carroll and Furniss sometimes produced both pictures and text simultaneously. Carroll exerted strong control over Furniss' illustration, to such an extent that Furniss would pretend to be out when Carroll called at his home. After completing Sylvie and Bruno Concluded Furniss vowed never to work for the author again.

On leaving Punch Furniss brought out his own humorous magazine Lika Joko. His two-volume autobiography, titled The Confessions of a Caricaturist was published in 1902, and a further volume of personal recollections and anecdotes, Harry Furniss At Home, was published in 1904.

Furniss wrote and illustrated twenty-nine books of his own, including Some Victorian Men and Some Victorian Women and illustrated thirty-four works by other authors, on some projects, like his illustrations for Farrow's Wallypug books, Furniss collaborated with his daughter, fellow artist Dorothy Furniss (1879–1944).
