Many Pop artists turned to printmaking because of their interest in the idea of mass production as a particularly American phenomenon. Printmaking, which produces relatively inexpensive multiple originals, is by definition especially well suited to communicating this fascination with mass culture imagery. In this print by Malcom Morley, mass-produced images themselves become the subject matter. Morley is intrigued by the possibilities of reproducing reproductions of the most familiar, cheap, and assocition-filled kind: tourist postcards.
