A few more open letters

Dear 4-colour process printing,

You are very clever. I love the way you make all those millions of rich and beautiful hues from just four little colours. I also like how most of your colours are dressed up in fancy names - Cyan, Magenta, Key - but Yellow is just plain old Yellow. I want you to know that I value and appreciate you... so I hope you won't be offended to hear that I'm using PMS 806 on the cover of a book I'm sending to the printer today. It's just that it needs to be really PINK - you know?

with warm wishes for our future relationship,
Editor

Deadline,

Yeah... it's not really working out between us.

keep it real,
Ed

Dear Staccato Short Sentences,

I love you. I truly do. Less is more. For sure. Most of the time. I am also enamoured of variety. Allow me to introduce you to my friend, the comma.

Yours in anticipation,
Paragraph

Dear Quark,

It's not you, it's me.

farewell,
Design team
--------------------------------------
Dearest, most cherished and most beloved Coffee Machine,

We miss you in the morning; we miss you in the evening; we miss you at supper time.

Please come back soon.

Eternal love,
Everyone

Nice one. Ditto deadline, ditto Quark.

Doesn't the K in CMYK stand for Kronos? It's doubly poetic next to pedestrian Yellow.
