‘Brighton Aquatints’ is Piper’s only fully realized example of an ‘artist’s book’. It was published in 1939 by Gerald Duckworth, and through its aquatints it celebrates some of Britain’s most iconic architecture: its Regency squares with their stuccoed and balconied houses; the Royal Pavilion in all its extravagance, and the filigree beauty of the West Pier. The colouring here is particularly successful: the facades highlighted as they are; the purple roofs and green balconies. And again a lowering sky which helps to emphasise the whiteness of these Regency buildings.
