Orchard's works take their inspiration from writings; most are constructed from books or parts of books (typically battered editions bought at flea markets). They reveal a printmaker's fascination at the pervasiveness of writing and printing in Western society—a phenomenon that has affected human consciousness at the deepest levels.
