I've had the same with Routledge. I ordered five books, three of which were poor print on demand, two were good quality.

Good paper is getting incredibly expensive, leading publishers to cut corners. Doesn't matter how good your printing process is if the paper you're putting it down on is shit.

I've noticed it even over in the states. It's probably even worse in the UK with Brexit and all that.

I've heard y'all's environmental agency isn't even noting, much less fining violations anymore, for example.

Haven't thought about Brexit, but it could be a factor. Good point.
