Leighton wrote to the newspapers from his home in Regent's Park to support the 1901 campaign to preserve Hogarth’s House, promising his copy of Hogarth’s self portrait if it became a museum. He was an author, artist, publisher and co-founder of 'The Graphic'. As an artist he used the pseudonym ‘Luke Limner’ and was also a prolific designer of book bindings between 1845 and 1900. He set up the Ex Libris Society to encourage the collecting of book plates.
