A collection of classic first editions with original dust-jackets created by leading artists and designers to be auctioned for House of Illustration at Sotheby’s.

Ahead of the sale, all works will be on display at Sotheby’s London from 8-11 December 2017.

There is a host of excellent artists involved including Shaun Tan, Lauren Childs and Luke Best, who says of his cover artwork “I love Steinbeck’s writing. I wanted to depict the broken, disparate feel of the book. The mass migration that displaces people and the hope that binds them together”
