At the heart of Michael Leunigs work lies the idea of the holy fool—a character who does not conform to social norms of behavior because of mental disability or as a deliberate choice, but is regarded as having a compensating divine blessing or inspiration.

The holy fool is the protagonist in most of Michaels paintings and cartoons. He is, in short, that strange person with the big nose, Mr. Curly, and Vasco Pyjama. As wonderful as his cartoons are, this collection offers much more of the artistic expression of Michael Leunig—described by the artist himself as regressive, humorous, messy, mystical, primal, and vaudevillian, producing work that is open to many interpretations.
