Pop artist Peter Blake has an eye for the quirky and the overlooked. Best known for the pivotal role he played in the development of British Pop Art, most famously the design of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album sleeve, Blake has never stopped working and exhibiting and successive generations of British artists have cited him as an influence.
As well as being known as a painter, Blake is renowned for his works on paper and as a leading exponent of collage. He has designed sleeves for albums by generations of recording artists, from The Who to Paul Weller and Oasis. This charming ABC is composed from the extensive collection of objects and ephemera he has gathered in his studio during his long career. Peter Blake's ABC displays the strong graphic sensibility and the love of popular culture for which the artist has long been renowned. This charming and collectible book will delight young and old alike.
Peter Blake is one of Britain's foremost living artists. He is a Royal Academician, was awarded a CBE in 1983 and a knighthood for his services to art in 2002. Retrospectives of his work have been held at Tate in 1983 and 2008.
Britain’s pioneering pop artist has created a gem of a first book using toys and curios from his own collection of treasures.
The book's a delight - and it will delight young readers.
...in praise of the sometimes beautiful, sometimes joyous ephemera of life.
