Much love and appreciation to the hardworking editors, who always went above and beyond. Zabet couldn't have done this without them, and we couldn't have done it without our core group of repeat designers. Special thanks to our families, who took quite a bit of shit from us once a quarter. And, of course, thanks to you for coming back each time. We still don't understand why you like us, but we're not going to complain.
