The Magic Pudding: Celebrating 100 years

In October 2018 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of one of Australia’s best-known children’s books, The Magic Pudding by Norman Lindsay. 

This display includes reproductions of original drawings from the book’s first edition in 1918, alongside watercolours produced in 1959 for The Magic Pudding puppet show. 

Awaken childhood memories with Lindsay’s familiar drawings and the accompanying excerpts from this iconic tale.
