Amy Winehouse wrote this love letter to former husband Blake Fielder-Civil in 2008, shortly after they married in Miami. It offers a deeply personal glimpse into the singer’s life at the height of her career.  

She writes at one point: “for Valentine's or our anniversary we can surprise each other with cars (1985 Porschehchee - a convertible WHITE pls and a proper 90's swimming costume to go with it, white Baywatch, a perm + white stilettoes).”

The letter sold for £2,700 ($4,628) at International Autograph Auctions in December last year.
