| 6 December , 2012 | Reply

If you’re still searching for some of the hard-to-shop-for men in your life, Michael Leunig’s book may be here to help.

Michael Leunig has been a visual staple in Australian newspapers since 1965 – his unique and genuinely Australian cartoons were loved and followed by all. Leunig’s work goes beyond the standard cartoon and instead provides a thoughtful and insightful view into the shifting landscape of Australian culture. Often funny and somewhat ironic, the cartoons’ themes are even relevant right up to today.

His new book, The Essential Leunig: Cartoons From A Winding Path is the ultimate collector’s item – packed with 400 cartoons selected from a career that spans over four decades. Leunig includes a delightful personal insight in the introduction, explaining his process of discovering the heart and soul of every work. The book is a great coffee table accompaniment with its vibrant hardcover and beautifully arranged cartoons.

The book would make an amazing gift for not only Leunig’s fans, but lovers of the uniquely Australian culture.

Available now: Penguin RRP$49.99.
