Take Cover is a priceless collection of the most provocative and hilarious covers of The Spectator Australia magazine from 2014 to the present day, all of them the brainchild and creation of multi-award-winning creative Sarah Dudley.

From the ‘coup de disgrace’ of Turnbull overthrowing Abbott through to the dimming of democracy in the USA; from the craziness of climate policies to the madness of identity politics, every topic in the culture wars gets its very own visual battlefield, accompanied by Sarah Dudley’s witty and insightful commentary on the issues involved and the creative decisions behind each and every cover.

Fighting the culture wars has never been so enjoyable.

About the author:

Since 2014, Sarah Dudley has been the covers editor of The Spectator Australia, the sister publication of the Spectator in the UK, the English-speaking world’s oldest continuously published magazine. She has a long career as a multi-award-winnng advertising writer and film director, winning major gold and silver awards nationally and internationally. She began her career in London’s top advertising agencies, before moving to Australia in the 1990s where she established herself as a pre-eminent writer. 

Switching to the medium of film, Sarah Dudley was awarded the Best Director of Australasia for her iconic and ground-breaking Napcan ‘Talking baby’ commercial, which spawned an entire industry of similar special effects TV ads. As well as creating and designing the covers for The Spectator Australia, Sarah has also written for the publication on a variety of issues. Her razor-sharp, targeted wit is equalled only by her ability with a sword on the fencing piste, having also won gold at the national foil team championships.
