About bloody time.
[papers] Guardian Resizes Ahead of Schedule — the trend for smaller formats in newspapers continues … ‘The “Berliner” format is already used by a number of European newspapers, including Le Monde, and is slightly larger than a tabloid but smaller than a broadsheet. The move to a smaller format is part of a wider newspaper industry trend and follows the change by the Independent and Times to tabloid.’ [via Feeling Listless]
I’ve mostly switched from reading the Grauniad to the Independent, largely because the change of format has actually reinvigorated the Indy’s editorial. The use of one, single story on the cover gives the paper much more focus – and the stories that the Indy has been choosing have been excellent.
