Samuel William Fores, often credited as S. W. Fores was an English illustrator and publisher/printer based in Piccadilly, London.
Fores, the son of a cloth merchant, began his career publishing his illustrations in 1783.
He specialised in caricature, typically hand-coloured, singly issued prints. Fores acquired a particularly large collection of caricatures, and at one time was said to have "the completest collection in the kingdom" in his Caricature Museum. He died in February 1838 at the age of 77 and was buried in his family vault at St. James Church in Jermyn Street.
