First Editions: Re-Covered – Monday 11 December 7.30pm at Sotheby’s 34-35 New Bond Street London W1A 2AA
On Monday 11 December Sotheby’s in London will auction a collection of 33 unique collectible first editions with beautiful original dust-jackets designed, and generously donated, by leading artists and designers. Artists chose a book they felt a strong connection to, and then created a new jacket, or artwork, in response to it. The end result is 33 wonderful lots which will be auctioned to benefit House of Illustration. The books and their beautiful new covers will be on public display at Sotheby’s in London (34-35 New Bond Street W1A 2AA) from Friday 8 December – Monday 11 December. You can see the auction lots here http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/2017/english-literature-l17408.html. You can bid in person, online or by phone.
House of Illustration – the world’s only public gallery solely dedicated to illustration and graphic arts - is a registered charity with no public funding relying on fundraising to raise over 40% of its income each year. As well as putting on 10 exhibitions a year the charity works with schools across London on projects with young people that inspire creativity and enable them to communicate visually, overcoming barriers such as language, literacy levels and special educational needs. It is the only UK gallery commissioning new illustration work for public display and runs the only residency for illustrators and graphic artists, supporting artists at every stage of their career.
