Modernism on Sea: Art and Culture at the British Seaside by Lara Feigel and Alexandra Harris

Modernism

Published next week in paperback by Peter Lang is Modernism on Sea: Art and Culture at the British Seaside by Lara Feigel and Alexandra Harris.

It's described as 'a journey around the coast of Britain to explore the rich artistic and cultural heritage that can be found there'. So expect the cheeky postcards marvelled at by George Orwell to austere modernist buildings such as the De La Warr Pavilion, as well as the Camden Town Group's sojourn in Brighton, John Piper's Nautical Style, Paul Nash's surrealist benches on the promenade in Swanage and the influence of bunting and deckchairs on the Festival of Britain to name just a few things.

288 pages, you can pre-order now for £11.99.
