Leunig Animated DVD

"Leunig" is an animated series produced by Australian actor and producer Bryan Brown and narrated by Sam Neill. (also available on video)

Available from:
The ABC Shop




Leunig appears most Wednesdays to Saturdays in the Melbourne Age. The Sydney Morning Herald and other syndicated newspapers around the country also carry some, but not all. Since Leunig works from Victoria, the Age is the most consistent source and the print quality is highest there.

Cartoon Hard Copies

All Leunigs since August '96 are on computer down at the Age head office and for AU$30, they'll reproduce a 12"x8" print on photgraphic paper. You need to identify the cartoon you want or front up in person to find it on their computer.

You can order by -
phone: +613 9601 2270
fax: +613 9602 1055
mail/counter: 250 Spencer Street, Melbourne Victoria 3000, Australia.

or The Age Photosales.


Various galleries around Australia carry individually numbered/signed prints of some of ML's etchings from time to time. They generally don't feature the popular characters but make great wall fillers for any Leunig fan nonetheless. They are generally released in batches.

Online Booksellers

Readings have always been a big Leunig supporter and will ship anywhere in the world. Email Janine and tell her you came from Curly Flat.

Dymocks have several Leunig titles which may be purchased online. list many titles (new and second hand) but they're expensive, being a U.S. site. Double check the currency. Is another U.S site which has both new and used editions, as well as calendars. The postage can be expensive on used books if you live outside the U.S.

I'd be pleased to list any other reseller, whether online or not...just ask me.

Calendars used to be a yearly item but I haven't seen any for several years. The Sydney Morning Herald have published one in newsprint in recent years. Postage Stamps were released in late 1998 and are now only available from philatelists or occasionally through Ebay
