Why the WOB?
Just dropped by to say how much I enjoy Classic Racer and the icing on the cake for me is the crossword. Many hours spent (with the help of Google trying to decipher the clues), my only peeve is that the clues are in reverse (white on black).
Surely most of the readers of Classic Racer are in their senior years, and have failing eyesight, making it difficult to read the clues. As an old time typesetter and graphic designer I can’t possibly see the reason for it being that way. The type size is not the problem it’s just the fact it is in reverse (WOB).
Surely, if you feel the need for using reverse why not do all the guff about winning a jacket and do the rest in normal black on white. Perhaps you can answer this for me. I look forward to the next crossword. Thanks. Hugh Leslie
Hello Hugh. Glad to hear you are enjoying
CR and I’m sorry you are having trouble with the white text. We cover a wide age range of readers these days and I didn’t feel the legibility was an issue, however, I’m always happy to make a change for a positive benefit and will adjust the crossword for the next issue. I’ll probably end up thanking you when my eyes start to fail me later in life. Mike
