The first color cover of Iron-Men Album, on our July-August 1977 issue, drew quite a bit of reader praise and we appreciate it.

We cannot have a color cover on every issue, at present subscription rates, since cost is much greater than for our usual covers in black with one color added. But we plan to do this at least once a year, probably for July-August.

Here are some comments that came in:

'Your colored cover looks very fine. I like the Iron-Men Album very much. I think I have all the Albums but one.' - Arnold Lubbens, Fremont, Michigan 49412

'The color picture on the Iron-Men Album is certainly very nice hope you have some more.' Wellington Vosburg, New York

'Thought the new magazine cover was excellent! In fact, the whole issue was extremely interesting and informative.' - John C. Matthai, Box 56, Easton, Maryland 21601.

'I am ordering a print of the picture on the front of the July-August issue of Iron-Men Album. It's a beautiful picture of past farm years, brings back a lot of childhood memories where neighbors cooperated together to help each other to harvest their crops. A nice picture to frame and enjoy, knowing that in a minute way, you were a part of that team of workers. Perhaps a little boy or girl that carried drinking water to the men remembers. Hope your next issue will have another beautiful American farm scene.' -Irene and Robert Reed, 352 Eagle Street, Woodstock, Virginia 22664.

'I think you chose the best picture there issue is a dandy one. I like pictures like that one, so get some more like it.' - Otto Korman, 910-18th Street, Two Rivers, Wisconsin 54241.

'I like the new cover on the magazine, also the plastic cover that protects it when shipping. I think it is getting better every year keep up the good work!' - G. H. Walkinshaw, 1249 Butler Avenue, Lincoln, Nebraska 68521.

'I would like to take the opportunity to compliment you on the new cover and colored picture on the front of July-August 1977 issue of the Iron-Men Album. It made me think of the Iron-Men Album issue back in the 1950s, except they didn't have a colored picture on the front. I have been a subscriber to the Iron-Men Album since 1957 and have kept all of my issues, which I refer to at different times. Keep up the good work I always look forward to each coming issue.' - Lloyd Burns, Box 16, Central Lake, Michigan 49622.

'Received my July-August issue today and was so surprised to see a colored cover very nice and makes a very beautiful publication. I hope it will continue, also plastic cover it came in is good protection as some sure get roughed up in mailing. I have your cover picture hanging above my desk for many years as I got one from Case when they first sold them.' - Vincent Johnson, Walker, Minnesota.

'I wanted you to know that your Iron-Men Album is really nice this time with that colored picture on the front and we are going to send and get it. Keep up the colored pictures. We enjoyed every Album we got and we still have all of them from away back. Thank you again, because we know it takes a lot of work to put this book together.' - Steam Engine Fans - Mr. and Mrs. Everett Adams, R. R. 1, RB156, Andrews, Indiana 46702.
