‘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. Here we look back from the West Pier towards Regency Square, and thereby reverse the accustomed view from coast to Pier. And the colouring works so well: the darkening sky throwing the brightness of the white, and the shimmer in the water, into clear relief.
