My IZ 212 arrived in NYC today. But no sign of Black Static.

I'm relieved that IZ212 is turning up in the States. Remember the length of time it took IZ211 to arrive, and that I said I'd have a word with DHL Global Mail? Still having it. Still trying to have it, to be more accurate. Emails go unanswered, phone calls unreturned.

Worth repeating that we ditched DHL once before due to poor performance (something of an understatement, that) and hooked up with Mercury, who were much better, but who then got taken over by DHL...

Ellen, Black Static was mailed a couple of weeks after IZ212, due to the fact that it had to be reprinted twice. So that should arrive shortly. I hope.

And my copy arrived yesterday in Bethany, Connecticut (USA) in excellent condition.

Thanks Andy. Will look out for it.

Arrived in Cambridge yesterday in fine condition. Looks like a very good issue. It should tide me over until Black Static arrives.

In Chicago yesterday. Hooray! Now to hound the local Barnes & Noble until they get *their* copies in.

Received mine in mint condition today.

I like the cover but something seems to have happened at the printer to knock it just a bit off. I forget the graphic design term I'm looking for but it looks like the color mix is a bit off, which makes the text look just a bit blurry.

Doesn't affect the cover art, only the text on the cover. Looks good on the inside just from a brief skim. The black and white graphics are very nice. Much as I like color interior illustrations, I see nothing wrong with going to BW, especially if it is more cost effective.

Looking forward to reading it, when I get a spare minute.

Still looking for an escape hatch out of the Midwest

Sounds like you mean 'out of fit' (a.k.a. 'out of register') - where one or more of the colour separations get printed slightly out of position. Can't say I have this problem with my copy though.

I filtered several such copies out but the packing gnomes missed one or two. Sorry Murph. Does it warrant a replacement? Happy to send one.

Oh, good grief, no, Andy. Don't send a replacement. I'm happy with mine as is. It is readable on the inside and that is what counts.

I just thought I'd mention something. It is such a minor thing but I remember the topic coming up repeatedly in my Graphic Design Courses. I just wish I could remember the proper term for the problem.

The primary cover image is fine (nice and dark, I like it). I'm a satisfied reader and subscriber. Can't ask for more than that these days.

Hell, I get another batch of courses for next semester, I'll even be able to afford to renew my subscription.

When I get a spare moment, I'll head down to Barnes and Noble on the Plaza and see if the usual three are stocked there. They are usually a month late and do not appear to be selling. :( Don't know what to tell you about that.

Respects,
S. F. Murphy

As Mike mentioned, it's called "out of register" :)

IZ 212 arrived in Iowa today. No sign of BS 1 yet, but it was mailed later, so hopefully it'll be here in a few days.

Heard on the news today that the UK post has a backlog of around a week's worth of post but they are not allowing postmen to work overtime because that would 'reward' them for for striking. Hence the backlog is trickling into the normal post at levels to keep overtime below whatever is usual without a strike. I don't know if this affects BS but my December Analog is late now.

Thanks, Ellen.

It was not the most exciting class I'd ever attended "Orientation to Graphic Communications." It might have been better if the instructor did not insist on using a teaching technique called "Stitching" which meant jumping back and forth in the book during the lecture.

Out of Register. It is a minor thing. I just thought I'd mention it. I'm glad I'm in the minority on that issue.

Respects,
S. F. Murphy

I haven't opened it yet, I'm afraid --to check if mine is too but not too worried. :wink:
