Alphabet Show

20th April 2007 at 01:00
An alphabet created by one of the pioneers of British Pop Art has gone on show at Scotland Street School Museum in Glasgow.

Peter Blake, now in his 70s, has had a long and varied career in the art world including designing the iconic "Sgt Pepper's" cover for the Beatles in 1967, and in 2006, Oasis' "Greatest Hits".

Blake produced his "Alphabet" series - described as "humorous, quirky and slightly bizarre" - in 1991, using his vast collection of comics, magazines, cigarette cards and other ephemera, to create 26 collage pictures which were then turned into screen prints.

Screen printing workshops for secondary pupils are fully subscribed but other art and alphabet activities are available on a drop-in basis during the show, which ends on June 3.
