Artist Peter Blake has created a range of new works inspired by the Glastonbury festival for the National Trust.

Blake, who designed the iconic cover art to The Beatles‘ 1967 album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, has created his latest works after being inspired by the famous Glastonbury Tor, which is owned by the National Trust. His artwork shows the 15th Century St Michael’s Tower at the summit of the Tor, surrounded by butterflies.

Michael and Emily Eavis, as well as St Michael himself, are incorporated into the design, and the artwork will feature on limited edition T-shirts which will be given away at the Trust‘s Glastonbury venue, The Outside Inn.

Meanwhile, Blake has also created a butterfly tattoo logo which will be available as temporary body art at the site. He said: “The combination of the Tor, the local butterfly and the festival really fired my imagination.”
