Print a newspaper or magazine in various different inks which smell and taste different. For instance, a news item about the oceans, shipping or an attempt at the world land speed record could taste salty, a cutesy "and finally" item could taste sweet, a cynical item or one on homelessness or poverty could be bitter and a satirical item could be sour. A recipe could have every ingredient printed in a different tasting and smelling ink, a piece on gardening could include the smells of the flowers and an item on astronomy could smell like outer space.

This would revive the printed word for a while.

       I can think of a few bitter rags and I don't even want to think what the "Sunday Sport" will smell like...

       The Daily Mail - the smell of middle class fear!

       Great! That's really intriguing. I've heard outer space smells like steak and hot metal... thought I'd like it to smell like strawberries...
