Colophon

Our look is the result of reader comments, our own experimentation, and feedback from distribution channels. Distinctive covers complement our distinctive approach to technical topics, breathing personality and life into potentially dry subjects.

The tool on the cover of Access Hacks is a flour sifter. Ever since humans first produced flour, they have constructed sifters to refine it. The Vikings used round, cup-shaped sieves utilizing horsehair fiber. In preindustrial times, whole wheat was ground in a mill, then sifted through successively finer bolting cloths to get various grades of flour, from dark whole-wheat to almost white for the wealthy. The bran removed while bolting was used by the miller to feed his livestock or was sold to others as feed.
