26 Jun 2001The auctioning of the 'Yesterday for Montserrat' limited edition prints signed by Sir George Martin and Sir Paul McCartney has started wonderfully well. The winning bid for copy number 1, the most prestigious print of the edition of 500, was over US$30,000 (not, as previously reported here, $70,010, which was apparently an invalid or hoax bid). Further copies are being made available for bidding in batches over the next few weeks. All profits are going towards building a cultural centre for the victims of the Montserrat volcano disaster, to help them rebuild their lives.
Since 1974 Genesis has created signed limited edition books on behalf of authors and artists ranging from the Beatles to Buckingham Palace.
