A collage used to create an album insert for the Beatles' classic 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has fetched more than $87,000 in an auction at Sotheby's in London, the BBC reports. The artwork, created by Peter Blake and Jann Haworth, was included with the record and intended to be a keepsake for fans. The 30-centimeter by 30-centimeter collage depicts Sgt. Pepper along with the band and contained the message, "For M.J. from Peter and Jann." The work was from the collection of architect Colin St. John Wilson, and Blake had presented it to Wilson's wife soon after completion. Blake and Haworth also designed all the original artwork for Sgt. Pepper's, including the record's iconic cover.
