Political cartoonists see the world in a way that makes us think.
They're often humorous, sometimes infuriating... always thought-provoking. They say in one picture what you couldn't describe in 100 words.
Many of the country's very best feature in Best Australian Political Cartoons 2023. They include Dean Alston, Peter Broelman, David Pope, Fiona Katauskas, Johannes Leak, Sean Leahy and John Spooner.
The book has been compiled by Russ Radcliffe, a recipient in 2013 of the Australian Cartoonists Association's Jim Russell Award for his contribution to Australian cartooning.
Each cartoon is accompanied by quotes taken from stories that became the cartoon subject.
From the Voice to Parliament referendum and political donations, to superannuation, the NDIS and global warming, there's food for thought in every one.
