In the heart of Sydney, lies Australia's oldest library – The State Library of New South Wales. Renowned cartoonist & history enthusiast Warren Brown dives headlong into the deep, dark recesses of the library to find stories that will amaze viewers. Digging through the rich archives, Brown discovers Australia’s oldest picture, Lord Alfred Douglas’s love letters, an Italian manuscript that was written in 1328, and locks of hair belonging to the creator of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley. Artifacts in the library prove that their lives can be as fascinating as the lives of famous historical figures.
