Oslo Davis has a complicated relationship with Melbourne: the fear of living anywhere else is pretty much the only thing keeping him here. Yet the city continues to inspire, amuse and compel Oslo to make jokes about it. This clever, funny and often cheeky collection brings together years of the artist’s most astute musings on Melbourne. It’s also a poignant celebration of a city that has suffered much in recent years and survived to tell the tale.
Oslo’s Melbourne contains the best of Oslo’s drawings and essays from The Monthly, The Age, The Guardian and beyond, as well as original works commissioned for this book. It is the perfect gift for every proud Melburnian, or at least anyone who literally couldn’t live anywhere else.
