‘Peter Blake has been a compulsive collector all his life, and his collections have provided him always with an inexhaustible source of popular materials for his art. His alphabets present us with a perfectly
paradigmatic example of this creative interplay between things found and things represented, between source materials and their transformations, between object and idea, thought and word, life and
art.’
(Mel Gooding)
