[[hampton is my address not where published
the first 'printer' in Elizabethton botched the job so badly including the cover color that i took it elsewhere; he even started by printing on typing paper which i caught. many problems.

the second 'printer' botched in so many ways that he volunteered to reprint. also a disaster. pages upside down and out of place. rusting 'stainless steel' staples, even. when the magenta cover ran out he wouldn't order anymore so i didn't get some 100-200 copies bound and he soon went out of business and i guess threw out those.

i only sent out a few copies of the warm-colored book and consider it a non-book; the magenta cover is the 'corrected' version. tho just another sad experience with so many problems to it. it's after this i got a copier. you may remember all the trouble/sadness of that experience, you and werner were so very kind to me]]
