This exhibition marks the 100th anniversary of Norman Lindsay’s The Magic Pudding: Being the Adventures of Bunyip Bluegum and his friends Bill Barnacle and Sam Sawnoff (1918).

As Sam’s surname suggests an ability to conceal weapons, as in sawn-off shotgun, so this classic Australian book is loaded with high-powered energy, aggressive language and violent imagery.

The exhibition looks at Lindsay’s cooking up of “the puddin’” during what turned out to be the last year of the Great War.
