For Cynthia Spencer

Cynthia, I too am a subscriber to Amnerican Ceramics Magazine. I took out a
one-year subscription early this year, and the first of the four issues
just did not come for ages. I called and apparently they had printing
problems, hence the delay. The issue finally did arrive, I can't remember
when, but it was Volume 12 No. 4.
I called again the other day to find out what had happened to the next
issue and was told it should arrive in mid-September. Judging from the
past, it will probably be later. Just thought I would let you know. Their
telephone number is: (212) 661-4397. Fax (212) 661-2389. It's a great
magazine and I am sure you will enjoy it. Hope you can sort things out with
them. They are very pleasant and helpful.

Thanks to all who emailed me regarding this magazine.
Everyone who responded said the last issue they got was 12/4 (the last
issue for 1997), no matter when their subscription started! Several
people reported not getting copies for over a year; other reported only
getting three copies per year for this quarterly for a long time.

I don't know about the rest of you, I think this is a bit shoddy. I'm
sure the many galleries and artists who advertise in this swanky mag are
paying big bucks for their ads to get to us readers in a timely manner,
so we can possibly visit the shows they are promoting. It is a beatiful
mag, and one of the few to offer much needed art criticism for ceramics.
I have supported it with my subscription dollars, but I would certainly
like to get my issues for more than just archival purposes. Let's all
call their number and bitch! (212) 661-4397. Fax (212) 661-2389
