Peter Blake Alphabets.

Starting with the back board and after collecting many, many letters.
Colour is the key.

Once the back board was taking shape I could start on the front board. All lino cuts have been hand coloured.

I feel that it can be important to link the various elements of the book design, that the front works with the back, the back with the spine etc.

Blake is known for his liking of Elvis Presley (The King) Hence the gold E.

Covered in 23½ C gold and distressed.

A hand dyed Scrabble board for the double hollow.

Now the hunt for the Y.
