PAPERWORK Bookshop at WORK Gallery

PAPERWORK is a new independent bookshop based at WORK in the heart of London’s King’s Cross and in collaboration with Black Dog Publishing Ltd.

We stock the full range of beautifully produced art, design, photography, fashion and music titles from Black Dog Publishing, along with the new architecture imprint, Artifice books on architecture. Alongside new releases, you’ll find rare and out-of-print titles from the Black Dog Publishing backlist.

In addition, PAPERWORK carries a large selection of critical theory titles and artists’ writings essential to students of the arts, including key works by practicing artists, theorists and curators on visual culture, postmodernism, aesthetics, philosophy, sexuality and much more.

We also have a curated list of artists’ books and editions from around the world, including small presses such as Book Works in London, Printed Matter and Dexter Sinister in New York, Art Metropole in Toronto, and READ in Vancouver.

PAPERWORK has a regular events programme, AfterWORK, in collaboration with WORK, featuring book sales, talks, signings and launches.

Bespoke publications relating to WORK’s exhibitions are published by Black Dog Publishing Ltd and are available through the bookshop at special exhibition prices. PAPERWORK also stocks limited edition prints from past and present WORK exhibitions.
