A Nod and a Wink is the fourteenth studio album by the English progressive rock band Camel, released in July 2002 on the label Camel Productions. The album was dedicated to Peter Bardens, who died in January 2002. Mellow and reflective in mood, it is the only Camel album to feature vocals on every track. It is currently Camel's last studio album to date.
