About This Work

Appropriated Alphabets 5 is from Blake’s ‘Appropriated Alphabets portfolio’.

His interest in letters and typography began whilst studying Art at Gravesend Technical College (1949-51); Blake was given a thorough grounding in a wide range of crafts including Roman lettering, hand lettering, typography and typesetting. This training has seeped into his work throughout his career with text often being an integral – or the only – element of a piece. Blake has created several works based around the alphabet during his career. His interest in the alphabet can be linked to the exploration of childhood innocence and nostalgia that permeates his work.

This signed limited edition silkscreen print on paper with matt and gloss glazes, is limited to an edition of only 100.
