While Nick talked to customers, Harriet lovingly wrapped each signed book in specially printed tissue.

Nick arriving with our first delivery after cycling from Bristol!

We were delighted to welcome Nick Hand on Saturday 3 December
to meet customers and sign copies of his beautifully designed book

Conversations on the Coast presents a selection of 20 stories and photography from the Slowcoast project. Graphic Designer and Photographer Nick Hand set off on his bicycle from Bristol in the summer of 2009 to cycle over 6000 miles around the coast of the British Isles.

The people he talked to along the way included weavers, boat builders, a stickmaker, bicycle mechanic, screen printer, cheese maker and tea taster. Conversations were recorded and edited as photofilms and uploaded from the saddle to the Slowcoast website, giving followers of the journey the chance to meet an inspirational group of people living and working around the coast of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Nick cycled from Bristol to Frome to personally deliver our first copies of this fascinating book!  We hear there may be another book being planned . . .
