Four hundred definitive cartoons spanning five decades

From the vast repertoire created by Michael Leunig since 1965 comes this inspired selection of his most universal and timeless pieces. Such is his prophetic insight that many of them are more relevant today – and funnier and more ironic – than when they were first published.

This beautiful, colour-filled hardback includes some works not previously collected, along with an introduction by Leunig on how he creates: the process of discovering 'poetry and spirit in the playful winding path that the semiconscious pen makes on a piece of paper'. The Essential Leunig is a testament to the enduring appeal of a unique Australian artist.

Book Cover:  Short Notes from the Long History of Happiness

Come sit down beside me I said to myself,
And although it doesn't makes sense,

I held my own hand
As a small sign of trust
And together I sat on the fence.
