Found Art, 1d Book

Found Art, 1d Book is a signed limited edition giclee print with silkscreen glazes by Sir Peter Blake.

The Found Art series continues with this exuberant cover from a ‘dime novel’. Frank Reade was the protagonist of a series of dime novels published primarily for boys. The four Frank Reade stories concerned adventures with the character's inventions, various robot-like mechanisms powered by steam. A very long series of juvenile novels followed which featured the son of Frank Reade, Frank Reade Jr., as its teenaged inventor-hero. These stories were written by Luis P. Senarens (1865–1939) with the pseudonym Noname. Frank Reade Jr.’s inventions included airships, submersibles, steam-driven and electrical land vehicles, and steam-powered robots- as seen here with the ‘Steam Horse’. The Frank Reade stories are perhaps the best known of the many boys' invention fiction series published in America during the later 19th century.

The choice of such a subject is typical of Blake’s oeuvre; combining nostalgia for childhood objects, an interest in popular entertainment and the use of rare printed materials from his personal collection.

    About the artist
    +

    Heralded as the ‘Godfather of Pop Art’, Sir Peter Blake was knighted in 2002 for his invaluable contribution to contemporary art. 

    Blake began his career creating collages from photographs, cigarette packets and matchboxes. This new approach to the creation of visual art – taking found imagery from Pop culture – was spearheaded in Britain by Blake and continues to inspire contemporary artists today. 

    Best known for creating the iconic cover to the Beatles’ 1967 album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, Blake continues to produce work that draws extensively on elements from popular cultures around the world.
