It is one of a number of generous donations they have received from leading artists for their forthcoming auction at Sotheby, First Editions Re-covered.

Artists chose a book they felt a strong connection to, and then created a new jacket, or artwork, in response to it.

The auction is now live on the Sotheby's website - have a look here! You can bid in person, online or by phone.

First Editions: Re-Covered Monday 11 December 7.30pm at Sotheby's 34-35 New Bond Street London W1A 2AA.
