Break-time blues

It is with disappointment that I write to tell you of my dislike for the new format of TESS. I confess that I was very keen on the previous incarnation. It was the perfect size to flick through and had a near-magazine feel to it.

While I am happy with the tweaks that you are making to the content of TESS, I feel that the new style gives a much more newspaper-like feel to one of my favourite magazines.

Perhaps you will read this and think that content is more important than aesthetics - and you would be right - but I'm afraid that I expect I'll be less likely to pick up the magazine and flick through it over a cup of coffee, reaching instead for one of the other weekly magazines to which I subscribe.
