Our friend Matt has written a fascinating (and detailed) post on his blog about his Paper Science project. We love seeing what people do with Newspaper Club and Paper Science is one of the most ambitious ventures to date – a year of publishing, four anthologies of brilliant comics in newspaper form. They’re really lovely things and you can still buy a complete set for just a tenner. If you’re in any way interested in publishing projects, comics and the new economics of creativity you should give it a read. It’s comprehensive and fascinating.
It’s fantastic to see some of the projects and ventures people hang off Newspaper Club and Paper Science is one of our favourites. Matt tried to do some ambitious things with subscriptions and delivery and though we couldn’t help to the extent we’d have liked it’s been the inspiration for a lot of the secret things Engineering have been working on. So, buy some papers from Matt and watch this space.
