                            Wanted - a new Editor
                                for Small Printer                B R I T I S H  ‡  P R I N T I N G  ‡  S O C I E T Y

          A version of this appeal has appeared for the past several months. There
          has been no response whatsoever but you should know that if nobody is
                  willing to take on the role of Editor then – quite simply –
                      the magazine will not be produced any more.

             Although the position is nominally for a period of three years, it is
               possible that the EC would consider somebody as Editor for a
                                   shorter timespan.
           I urge you to consider whether this is something you could do. I should
                be happy to answer any questions about what is involved –
                      just send a message to

               If you feel able to take the plunge, then please contact the BPS
            Secretary, Peter Salisbury, at 4 Doran Drive, Redhill, Surrey, RH1 6AX,
                           or email
