Pop Art icon Sir Peter Blake showed original collages inspired by journeys –both real and imagined, which reveal his fascination with the surreal and comedic opportunities presented by the use of collage. Blake is renowned for his collages, and this series shows his mastery of the technique. These pieces might include images from postcards, magazines or found ephemera.
