Paul Cox was invited to add some illustrations to a first edition of Three Men in a Boat which was to be included in an auction of “extra-illustrated” first editions at Sotheby’s in London on 6th December 2014. The money raised will go to the House of Illustration whose brief is to raise the profile of illustration in general through exhibitions and education.
Later: Paul’s work was sold for £2800. A magnificent price. The auction was a huge success and raised more than £120,000.
