“Good Engines” is a 12-page black-and-white newspaper telling the tale of James Watt Junior and his feud with rival engine-maker Matthew Murray.
I printed it with Newspaper Club in a limited edition of 500 for distribution at TEDxLeeds 2010 and Interesting North. If you missed it then I have a small number of copies left. You can buy one here for whatever you think it’s worth.
As a special offer to celebrate the inspired choice of Matthew Murray for the brilliant Morganesque-designed 3 Ludo note, I’ll accept payment in Ludos. The price is the same – pay what you like, any quantity of Ludos. But you’ll have to pay me in person, at least until someone creates a secure online Ludo exchange. See you at TEDxLeeds 2012 :)
I’m selling the remaining copies through this blog. You can choose your own price, so long as you cover the postage and packing of £2 for UK orders or £7 for anywhere else in the world. Your copy will be dispatched using Royal Mail.
