Letters to the Editor. Illustration: Paul Scott

Sir, – Viewing the recent “improvements” to your online letters page, one could be forgiven for believing that you had been invaded by a gremlin armed with Adobe Illustrator. Adjacent to the newly designated “Letter of the Day”, we find an illustration that takes up roughly half of the screen. Every other letter, too, is now accompanied by an overpowering illustration, to no apparent end. In my humble opinion, these images detract from your pages, and the “Letter of the Day” would be better served by being denoted with elegant restraint. – Yours, etc,
