The Last Resort. Photographs of New Brighton by Martin Parr. Text by Ian Walker. Promenade Press, Merseyside, 1986. 90 pp. Oblong quarto. (True) First edition. Stiff wrappers. 40 color plates.

In his now classic third book, Martin Parr caught the British lower middle class at play in the seaside resort of New Brighton. His pictures, sometimes humorous, sometimes bitterly ironic, make us wonder where all the fun is. Children smear ice cream on their faces, mothers change diapers, dogs drag their owners around on leashes. The medium format color images are beautifully reproduced and the book cleverly designed. Later re-issued by Dewi Lewis (photo-eye catalogue #PK452), this first edition is now extremely scarce.

A Fine copy; very minor rubbing; price sticker on rear wrapper.
