Psychedelic landscape commissioned by the Beatles up for auction

A psychedelic landscape which the Beatles wanted on their Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album is going under the hammer.

The artwork, complete with parrot, peacock and several mushrooms, was commissioned by the Fab Four to fill the inner section of the record’s sleeve.

But they were persuaded to reject the design in favour of a photographic portrait of them wearing their coloured tunics.

Now it could fetch £90,000 at auction house Sotheby’s.

The cover of the 1967 album famously features Peter Blake’s colourful collage of life-sized cardboard models of famous faces together with the band.
