The Yellow Spine 133.2 saga continues:

Barry: I agree, I've flopped back to thinking it is faded.  Looking at the
image from Jim at 400%, you can see orange along the spine edges, and even
running horizontally between those thin gold bands at the bottom of the
yellow section.

Joe: True, we may never know for sure.  And you can add Life and Death of
a Spanish Town and Babbitt to common red spines that fade, and it doesn't
become yellow.  Why this one?  Does this red have more yellow in it?

Darrel: Given this is a common, we probably could experiment with
attempting to fade one.  I'll see if I can find an old EEPROM eraser.

Roger: Thanks for the history on jacket printing.  From what you know, any
opinion on this jacket issue?


But still, that yellow is so bright.  And we have the fact that yellow
spines have only been seen on jackets with 379 titles.  Perhaps there just
is not a big enough sample.

There are over 130 folks on this mailing list; hopefully we can get data
on more than just 4 or 5 jackets.  OK, maybe we have 7 or 8 (because some
that have responded have more than one copy).
