Award winning cartoonist and yarn spinner Warren Brown takes us on a surprising journey into the hearts and minds of Australia's Prime Ministers. After months spent foraging through the nation's archives, Brown unearths an array of 10 extraordinary objects with countless secrets to tell - Harold Holt's last days as revealed in the items he kept in his briefcase; hundreds of passionate love letters Joseph Lyons wrote to his wife; John Curtin's Australian Journalists' Association badge, worn every day whilst he was in office; Andrew Fisher's tin lunch box which he used when he was just a poor gold miner in Gympie; William Hughes and the vote "yes" for conscription badge; the gold cigarette case Stanley Melbourne Bruce treasured till the day he died; the wind-up camera Robert Menzies used to make home movies during the London Blitz and many more. These reveal the nation's leaders as you have never seen them before.
