Frank,

A little correction. The British Colonial Printer & Stationer, later Printing World, predates both American Printer and Deutscher Drucker. Its first issue was published on December 16, 1878, coming out weekly for 128 years. Unfortunately passing through the hands of several publishers it ended up being 'suspended' by its last owner.

The full collection, as well as British Printers and many others, can be seen at the wonderful St Bride's Library in London. This is somewhere you should spend a few hours in the next time you're in London. Plenty of material to ruminate on on those shelves!

But I'm in full accordance that the suppliers to this industry need to support what printed trade or business magazines remain, Print Business included of course.

I have give Frank and WhatTheyThink my thanks for the shout out! As well as kudos to Andy and Julie Plata for their faith in print, American Printer and me.

Gareth, thanks for the historical footnote. We will have to adjust our bragging rights accordingly.

Thanks, all

Katherine O'Brien
