    If you could print a book, what would it be about? 
    This question is the start, middle, and unfinished ending of this book, a book of ideas for books. 
    In early 2022 a group of individuals in Leeds came together to explore book publishing. The idea was to find out how a book could become by learning about the various tasks and roles involved in running a Small Press. We met in person on Thursdays at Rainbow Junktion café at All Hallows’ Church on Regent Terrace, LS6. We also met online. We produced a call out across the city of Leeds inviting people to submit either 150 words of text or an image that conveyed an idea for a book and then we worked with designers Chaosmos Studio to create the book that you hold. 
    What happens to a book of book ideas? 
    We don’t know yet, that’s the next part of the story.
