Ray Prince should change the spelling of his surname to “Prnce.” Because there is no “i” in Prince. “Donate your personal collection of graphic arts and printing related books to Cal Poly's Graphic Communication Special Collection,” he suggests. “The Graphic Communication program is alive and well. They are in need of a great printing library.”

Dick Popp, Roger Ynostroza and Prince already have made arrangements to transfer their libraries to the school. If you'd like to add to this legacy, e-mail Cal Poly's Harvey Levenson: hlevenso@calpoly.edu.

Readers are enjoying our redesign. Here are some early reviews:

“Love the new design, fresh and as always, full of good information. Just had a meeting today about IMb barcodes and your article confirmed some issues with which we are struggling.”

From an old friend: “Congratulations on a great new design. I love all the callouts and boxes — it makes the magazine fun and easy to read.” Another writes: “I like the new look of AP. I am excited to see the very clean layout, the great use of color and the new graphics/icons.”

And our favorite comment: “The new look of the AMERICAN PRINTER magazine is absolutely outstanding. And the new picture of that hottie KOB is great!”

Rob Pope offered his condolences on the loss of Dick Gorelick. “He was a friend, consultant and the greatest mentor I have ever had,” writes Pope. “In my 15 years in the printing industry, my greatest gift was meeting Dick Gorelick.” Pope recalls Dick's unique multitasking abilities: “I saw him carry on a complex phone conversation while simultaneously writing notes on an unrelated subject on one of his famous yellow pads.”

Pope shared a tale from Dick's undergrad days at the University of Missouri: “He was so poor that the first semester he arrived early, bought all the books for his classes, read them, and returned them to the bookstore in time for a refund before classes started. He aced the classes of course.”

Many will relate to Tom Brennan's recollection of listening to Dick: “I was both awed and brought to tears of laughter.”

With this issue, we have emptied our inventory of Gorelick columns. Dick is often in our thoughts. We miss him.
