Paper Science

Last night we sent a newspaper to print for We Are Words + Pictures.

Produced in time for the Thought Bubble comic festival in Leeds, the newspaper is a sampler of the kind of work that We Are Words + Pictures stock at their occasional market stall.

It’s filled with illustrations, short stories, poetry, photography… anything really. The brief was that contributors had to submit something a little different to their regular output, all drawn together into a 12 page, full colour mini-anthology.

Contributions by Tom Humberstone, Dan Hancox and Matt Jones.

500 copies were printed in all, 300 of which will be available this weekend for just £1. Any remaining issues they’ll be offering for sale at their website

Back cover by Adam Cadwell.
