Comprises: (1) jacket mockup consisting of a card sheet with text pasted on, with transparency overlay noting the required colours.

Signed 'Bob' (4) Three typed pages from Shaw responding to the queries, including a response to Edwards' wondering about light levels euphotic zone (indeed, wondering what the euphotic zone was - come on Malcolm, try reading a book once in a while). Another nice correction from Edwards is replacing Normalcy with Normality given the latter's increased currency and pleasantness - excellent move Malcolm.
