John Leech (1817 – 1864) was a caricaturist and illustrator noted for his work with Punch and as the illustrator of A Christmas Carol as well as other christmas short stories for Charles Dickens.

In 1843, Leech created eight illustrations for the Charles Dickens novella A Christmas Carol, drawing four in colour and four in black and white.
