Additional extras

Wunderkammer Press

Wunderkammer Press is a different kind of publishing venture. It operates within Bath School of Art and Design and publishes the exciting, the curious and the thought-provoking.

Chinese printing press

A set of Chinese lead letterpress and trays, thought to be the last set cast in lead, was donated to Bath Spa University in 2016. Gifted to Bath School of Art and Design by RiXing Type Foundry in Taipei, Taiwan, the 48 trays and 10,000 lead characters are used for teaching and promoting Chinese culture.

Art shop

Our art shop offers a wide range of art materials for staff and students at competitive prices. Working closely with academics and technicians we ensure that we hold stock, or can obtain at short notice, materials that are required for course and research work.
