DESCRIPTION:  Can be purchased as part of the Appropriated Alphabets portfolio: comprises 12 individual alphabet works in a presentation folder. Each work has an unique finish including gold leaf, embossing, collage and metallic inks.

Appropriated Alphabets is a portfolio of twelve Alphabets created or sourced from Blake's personal collection of printed ephemera.

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. The use of ‘found letters’ or commercial lettering in his work is something that Blake adopted in the 1950s; allying himself with decorators, sign painters and commercial artists rather than the fine art establishment: declaring himself a ‘pop’ artist. Blake has created several works based around the alphabet during his career, including his 1991 pop culture alphabet and his 2007 nursery collage alphabet. His interest in the alphabet can be linked to the exploration of childhood innocence and nostalgia that permeates his work.
