“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.
Read more about the process of writing and publishing the story in this blog post, or see more pictures of the newspaper on Flickr.
