“Print edition”



Hi Strands fans. Perhaps it's down to my past decade in publishing (albeit only occasionally doing magazine or newspaper work), but the clue of "Print edition" was immediately obvious to me. So much so, in fact, that I got the spangram with my first move, seeing the word NEWSPAPER spelt from top to bottom and dividing the board in two.

From there on in, it was simply a case of spotting words to do with print media, which wasn't too tough. 

COLUMN was spelt out in the top right-hand corner, and FOLIO was opposite it on the left. Immediately below it was ARTICLE, albeit a bit tougher to see as it was spelt backwards. CAPTION completed the left half of the board neatly.

The right-hand side of the board was a little more about layouts with two four-letter words - FOLD and PAGE - jumping out immediately. That simply left BYLINE to complete the puzzle.
