Title: Dust nova winds Abstract: The formation of dust in the material ejected in nova explosions was first mooted in 1934 but was only confirmed with the advent of infrared observations several decades later. We now know that a range of mineralogical types of dust forms in nova ejecta. I will describe dust formation in nova winds, the peculiar nature of the dust and what it might tell us about other dust formation in other astrophysical environments.
