  • “A com­put­er screen feels like work. You stare into a screen for 8 hours a day, con­stant­ly check­ing email, typ­ing in a word proces­sor or run­ning num­bers in a spread­sheet. The last think you feel like doing is going home, curl­ing-up on the week­end with a nice cup of tea and read a 3,000 word arti­cle at 72dpi with a lap­top so hot you could fry and egg on it. Paper is the per­fect replace­ment. A broad­sheet news­pa­per that has been gor­geous­ly laid-out not only feels pro­fes­sion­al and relaxing—it doesn’t feel like work.” A piece on what can be done with cheap, acces­si­ble print on demand ser­vices like News­pa­per Club.
