In de­sign, as in life, tim­ing mat­ters – or so a num­ber of our re­cent cor­re­spon­dents have sug­gested. In her May ar­ti­cle on Poland’s emer­gent de­sign scene (“What We Can Learn From Poland,” page 084), Elizabeth Pagli­a­colo notes how the coun­try’s cre­ative re­nais­sance has dove­tailed with the rise of a re­ac­tionary na­tional regime – both a bane and a spur for de­sign­ers there. “Thank you for rais­ing con­cerns about the right­ist gov­ern­ment of Poland and how it af­fects our life,” To­masz Fomienko of Zi­eta Prozess­de­sign wrote from Wro­claw. “Let’s hope it won’t last much longer.” Another reader, Ralph Lem­bcke of Lon­don, On­tario, was struck by the tim­ing of Cas­tor De­sign’s new book-cumde­sign-ob­ject. The lim­it­ededi­tion tome, which we fea­tured on the last page of our March/april is­sue, con­tains what was thought to be the largest prime num­ber printed out across three hand­some vol­umes. The fig­ure Cas­tor used, how­ever, was sup­planted in Jan­uary by one more than a mil­lion dig­its longer. “While I think Cas­tor De­sign’s book is bril­liant,” Lem­bcke con­cluded wryly, “I’ll wait for the lat­est ver­sion to hit the shelves be­fore I or­der.” Please send your ob­ser­va­tions to feed­back@azure­on­
