I must say that Sandra and her team are really building up an outstanding collection of high-quality tutorials here. The downside of publishing them in one PDF though is that the individual tutorials will be harder to find for Blender users. I'd think that making the tutorials available either as webpages or as individual PDFs (say, after the issue has been out for two months) could benefit many users.
The only critique I want to give the team is that the quality of some of the artwork in the Galleria section is really low. It should be quality over quantity, guys!
