Simon Roberts has spent the past three years travelling the coastline of Britain creating a comprehensive photographic record of the country’s remaining pleasure piers, in homage to these monuments of Victorian engineering and eccentricity.

Pierdom is the most comprehensive photographic record of these unique structures by a British photographer for decades. Roberts has documented the remaining 58 pleasure piers using his 4 x 5” plate camera and signature landscape style, echoing the aesthetic and tone of his previous monograph, We English.

Presented as a landscape format monograph all surviving pleasure piers are represented along with a handful of lost piers and seascapes; photographs marking where a pier once stood.

Published by Dewi Lewis Publishing and designed by FUEL, the book contains a map identifying locations of all piers, an introductory essay by photography critic Francis Hodgson and an appendix containing a potted history of each pier.
