|Beside the Seaside, edited by Yvonne Cloud, 1934, Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture, JMR738.|
Having alternate, surreal takes on the seaside has been a preoccupation of many British artists, particularly in the early twentieth century, with artists like Paul Nash producing surreal guidebooks, and artists like Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth based in St Ives, coming up with different ways to see the sea and shore.
