Sir: I write to echo the complaints of Mr Ingham

(Letters, 22 May) and to add a few of my own concerning the SPECTATOR'S de- teriorating presentation.

The stapling is regularly insuffi- cient: quite often there is but one staple attached, and that some- times insecurely. The paper is cut unevenly and the type-area is shifted up and down from page to page.

I am sure that you must re- ceive many complaints such as these, so isn't it time the SPEC- TATOR turned over a new leaf? Simon Prescott-Hughes 21 Huddleston Road, Tufnell Park, London N7
