I look forward to the great articles and awesome art featured in the magazine each month. When viewing art in a magazine, what makes the art pop is the texture and gloss of the pages the art is printed on. However, upon receipt of the October 2016 edition (issue 139), I was disappointed to find there was no pop! Why? Because all the pages in the magazine were printed on recycled paper. All the images are dull to look at and the texture of the paper as you turn the pages seems sticky to the touch. Why the difference in paper used to print the magazine’s main section for this issue? David Antrobus, via email Claire replies Hello David, thank you for writing in. I totally agree with you about your point. The recycled paper that was used in issue 139 was unacceptable to us, too. The paper did nothing to help the images be seen in a way that we would like. Rest assured, we have made sure that we won’t get that paper again.
David was disappointed by the paper quality of issue 139. And so were we!
