Holy Fool: The pictures of Michael Leunig

Michael Leunig

Filled with his trademark poignancy, originality and arrow-to-the-heart wisdom, Holy Fool is a collection of more than 240 artworks by Australia’s most admired cartoonist.

At the heart of Michael Leunig’s work lies the idea of the holy fool - a character who does not conform to social norms of behaviour because of a peculiar mental disposition or as a deliberate choice, but is regarded as having a compensating divine blessing or inspiration. It could be said that the holy fool is the protagonist in most of Michael’s paintings and cartoons.


As wonderful as his cartoons are, in Holy Fool we see so much more of the artistic expression of Michael Leunig - from drawings and paintings to prints and sculpture, collected together for the first time. Holy Fool is a must-have volume for curious art lovers and for the legion of Leunig fans.
