John Lennon Collection To Be Auctioned

John Lennon

Over 100 of John Lennon’s drawings, poems and stories will be sold at auction in June, it has been reported.

Sotheby's are expecting to raise more than $130,000 (£78,000) overall for papers from the making of Lennon's books In His Own Write and A Spaniard In The Works.

The collection is owned by Tom Maschler, who was the one who first persuaded The Beatles' Lennon to compile some of his writings for a book, published in 1964, and then worked with him again for the 1965 follow-up. 

Sotheby’s will be auctioning Maschler’s Lennon items in New York on 4 June. In the lead-up to the sale, the items will be on display at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, on 13-14 March then at Sotheby’s London from 21-25 March.

Anybody got £80,000 we can borrow?!
