My compliments to the editors on the broad, rich content of the March 2018 issue of BTS.
I tried the print-on-demand option, wondering what quality would show up from an inexpensive third-party provider.  I am very impressed to see such a clean layout and crisp print in a handsome, well-constructed volume. I vote for keeping this option available, and I encourage readers to try it.
