The Illustrated Treasury of Australian Humour - second hand
Chosen by Michael Sharkey. Published in 1988. 310 pages.
Hardcover in excellent condition.
A picture book in which the sparkling text in verse and prose is complemented by brilliant and witty drawings and cartoons and photographs, this volume will give lasting pleasure to a wide audience. That it is based on a historical perspective to show the development and changing moods and preoccupations of Australian humour writers in no way detracts from its universal appeal. What we were and what we have become: a fascination study in social history designed to entertain rather than instruct.
