Welcome to the Department of Small Works, created by Nick Hand as a home for design, photography and print.


Two books for the autumn

Journeyman and Conversations from Land’s End to John o’Groats are in the last stages of design and will be published this autumn. Both books celebrate British craft and record Nick Hand’s zig-zag journey on the printing bike up the spine of Britain visiting places known for making one thing.


New dates for courses and workshops in letterpress printing. All take place in our own printshop, The Letterpress Collective, within Bristol’s Centrespace Studios.

In the shop

This is a detail from the beautiful Queen’s Square Riot print cut in lino by Luke Carter and printed in our printshop. This print and a selection of other letterpress work is available in our online shop.
