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 Word Hacks is a handheld mixer. The first patent for an electric mixer was issued in 1885. Many of the early mixers appeared very industrial, looking more suited for mixing paint than pound cake. By the 1930s, more modern glass-bottomed mixers were produced with a motor built into the lid. By World War II, mixers were mounted on a stand with a bowl underneath. Eventually mixers became smaller and contained entirely in a small plastic case with a handle: the modern handheld mixer. Today’s consumer can choose from an assortment of manufacturers’ handheld or the the more heavy-duty stand mixers.
