The Paget illustrations have been reprinted in many Holmes anthologies. Paget did for Sherlock Holmes what John Tenniel did for Lewis Carroll's Alice stories: he defined the look of a truly great and original fictional character.

A complete set of Strand issues featuring the illustrated Sherlock Holmes tales is one of the rarest and most expensive collector's items in publishing history. Paget's original Paget is alluded to in the Christmas special of Sherlock , where he is the illustrator for Watson's Holmes stories in The Strand.

Mrs Hudson criticizes his characteristically dark style for making B Baker Street look dingy, and Watson responds that the illustrator's "out of control", complaining that he had to grow a mustache just so people could recognize him from Paget's illustrations.
