I used to write regularly for one of IPC's yachting magazines. The editorial team were very good at proof reading in those days so typos and poor grammar rarely got to the printed page, but the printers were notorious for printing photographs the wrong way round! (Text and basic layout was sent by FTP link but photographs were scanned and placed by the printers themselves.)

More recently I spotted a copy of the Titanic Magazine on a shelf at WH Smiths. Seafarers will see the problem!

Let me just say it should come as no surprise that the iceberg didn't know which way the ship was travelling.
