Slightly Famous People's Foxes

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the Slightly Foxed Editions - I'm always so charmed and intrigued by the memoirs they publish.  And now, to celebrate the 10th birthday of Slightly Foxed, they have published a fun-sounding book called Slightly Famous People's Foxes.

It's a gallery of fox sketches by the great and the good (including Diana Athill, Quentin Blake, Helen Mirren, Michael Palin, Libby Purves, Alexander McCall Smith, and many more - read the full list here) with descriptions introducing them all.  Clicking on that link will take you to a sample, which is more than promising...

Even better, it's only £5 in the UK (also available internationally), and all profits go to The Children's Hospital School at Great Ormond Street.  A great-sounding book for a definitely great cause!  And a very happy birthday to the wonderful Slightly Foxed.


  1. What an unusual and quirky idea, I love it! I had never heard of the 'Slightly Foxed' editions but thanks to this post, I will now seek them out. I love Quentin Blake's illustrations.

  2. I'm slowly growing my Slightly Foxed editions shelf...I love them, and the quarterly. I had notification of this new book, but thanks so much for reminding me to put an order in!

  3. Thanks so much for posting about this. I'm a SF subscriber, but I seem to have missed this somehow. Looks yummy.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!
