What Kind of Region Do We Want to Live In? is a book of ideas about the future of West Yorkshire by 15 writers based here or with strong regional connections. The fantastic design and typesetting is by Leeds-based designer Eve Warren.

The book also features documentation from our project visiting many of the markets of West Yorkshireand asking people to draw maps of the things they care about in their neighbourhood.
