COLOUR ME NOT HAPPY

Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

Dear CR When I pur­chased the lat­est is­sue of CR, #185, I could hardly wait to get home to de­vour the pages. I must say the fea­ture you pre­pared on the late, great John Sur­tees is ex­cel­lent and a wor­thy trib­ute to the great man him­self. Then I turned to the fea­ture on Vince French, by which time I needed lamp­light, but it was dif­fi­cult to read be­cause the coloured pa­per was re­flect­ing in the light and it wasn’t much bet­ter in nat­u­ral light. I am not given to triv­ial crit­i­cism but in my opin­ion ‘colour sheets’ are not work­ing, sorry to say, oth­er­wise a great mag. Ron­nie Mcquil­lan

Hello Ron­nie,thanks for your let­ter. I’ve cho­sen yours amidst the sev­eral I re­ceived along the same lines.your let­ter is rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the cor­re­spon­dence on the mat­ter and I would like to do two things in re­la­tion to it. The first is to say sorry, you are right. When I re­viewed the pages on screen and on print out the con­trast lev­els were nowhere near as se­vere as they even­tu­ally turned out in the mag­a­zine.this is by no means meant as an excuse, just an ex­pla­na­tion. The sec­ond is to as­sure ev­ery reader that such things will NEVER hap­pen again on my watch. Sorry ev­ery­body, fu­ture fea­tures will be black on white or very easy to read ev­ery time – de­spite what my pre­view pages might lead me to be­lieve to the con­trary. Best wishes, Tony
