Christmas comes early this year for book lovers!
When almost 100 leading booksellers from Britain and around the world descend on the capital, there is sure to be a buzz of anticipation. Thousands of beautiful, rare, collectible and quirky books, prints, photographs and ephemera will be offered for sale at prices to suit every enthusiast.
The PBFA is delighted to welcome the House of Illustration exhibiting a selection of highlights from their forthcoming charity auction to raise funds for London's most exciting new arts space.
First editions of much-loved classic titles, uniquely annotated with extra illustrations by celebrated artists will go under the hammer at Sotheby's on December 8th. Don't miss the chance for a sneak preview of these singular works by Sir Quentin Blake, Paula Rego and Gerald Scarfe, amongst many others.
We invite collectors old and new to join us for this special Christmas treat.
The PBFA would like to thank Abebooks for their generous support for the fair
