Gerald Scarfe - The Making of Pink Floyd: The Wall book auctionOn Monday December 8th, artist Gerald Scarfe is taking part in a fundraising auction, offering a unique, one-off copy of his fascinating book The Making of Pink Floyd: The Wall, which was published (in paperback) three years ago this month.

The auction - First Editions: Redrawn - in partnership with Sotheby's, is being held to support House of Illustration. They moved into their new home this summer, and the artistic and educational potential of the new space is even more exciting than predicted, but they need funding to fulfil its potential. For the auction, Sotheby's has very generously waived all sale commission. Thirty-four acclaimed illustrators – and some authors – have returned to one of their classic books, adding extra illustrations, comments on existing drawings and personal insights about the motivation behind characters.

The Wall book (as you'll know from our review) is a bit of an essential, and the edition on offer in the auction is a true "one-off". It is a first edition with numerous annotations and illustrations inserted and added by Scarfe, including a heavily amended dust-jacket.

The auction will be held at Sotheby's, 34-35 New Bond Street, London W1A 2AA at 7.30pm (doors open at 7.15pm) on December 8th. For more information on the Scarfe lot and all other artists taking part, go to the House of Illustration web site. There, you will find a 15MB PDF of the fully illustrated catalogue through this link.
