FIRST EDITIONS / SECOND THOUGHTS
An auction of classic books and works of art annotated by 75 of America’s greatest authors and artists.
First Editions/Second Thoughts (FEST) is an auction of one-of-a-kind books and works of art to be held December 2 at Christie’s New York to benefit PEN American Center. Through annotations including notes, essays, drawings, photographs, letters to the reader, and inserted memorabilia, each contributor has transformed a first edition of a classic work into a distinct new artifact for one lucky buyer.
