Illustrations For Book “A Bunch of Poesy” & Correspondence To Editors

1979–1992. Nineteen (19) items comprising of 12 ink illustrations and seven letters including examples of book cover art, each illustration captioned, and each letter signed by Leunig in ink, some letters or envelopes stamped “received” with date, 4 x 6cm (illustrations approx. each). Most images taped to paper, some with stains; wear to correspondence.

Eleven out of 12 illustrations appear in Leunig’s 1992 book, A Bunch of Poesy, alongside three letters to Tom Thompson of Collins, and Angus & Robertson publishing houses, one which has six examples of cover designs in ink drawn by Leunig for the book. There are also three letters to “Richard” (likely of Angus & Robertson) concerning publishing instructions on the colour of The Bedtime Leunig (1981): “must be in strong red.” Also included is a mock-up cover in ink for The Second Leunig: A dusty little swag (1979), and a letter to “Roz” with the inked letters for the cover of A Bag of Roosters (1983).

This collection is accompanied by the book A Bunch of Poesy, 1992.
