A team of students have been planning Auction 13 to continue the Lincoln auction tradition – it was Lincoln that started off the design auction idea back in 2007
The first auction was held in TPH back in April 2008 and the second at St Brides Library, London in March 2009.
Both were hugely successful and raised a great amount of money for the end of year shows. For more info about those, check here.
2013 is the year of Auction 13. It’s the last year at Thomas Parker House, so how else to end the tradition, than with an idea that was born there!? Auction 13 is a postcard auction where we are asking designers, illustrators, typographers,
photographers and creatives of all disciplines to get involved.
What happens? We send them a postcard, they doodle/ sketch / stick something on it and send it back to us and we admire it and share it with the world. An
online auction is planned, so people from all over the world can have a chance to bid on a unique piece of design. We’re excited about it – are you?
