Hi Richard,
I was curious to know why the typos weren't corrected in this book, in its second printing? Thanks!

John,
Once I publish a book, there are a million other projects to move on to. Now, with Genii, that forward movement is even greater. Aside from that, once the book is out neither the publisher nor artist usually go back and proof read it again (we're all pretty sick of it by that point). Readers generally do not send in lists of typographical errors. So, when the book is reprinted very little, if anything, gets corrected. These are luxuries that a miniscule publisher does not have access to.

Richard... you mean you're not going to go in and fix all of John Northern Hilliard's spelling mistakes :(

Does this mean that lists of typos would be appreciated? There are a bunch of us anal-retentives out here . . . .
