You’ll Have the Opportunity to Buy John Lennon’s Doodles Soon

Good news, Beatles fans: A new batch of John Lennon’s endearingly nonsensical poems and doodles will go on sale at Sotheby's this June. According to the New York Daily News, the collection currently belongs to Booker Prize creator Tom Maschler, a publisher who convinced Lennon to make them into a book in 1962. "You Might Well Arsk" has 89 lots, worth a total presale estimate of $800,000, and includes everything from "gibberish descriptions" of Liverpool to a drawing of a "National Health Cow," an apparent jab at Britain's national health service.
