I flew through Heathrow on the way home last week – and picked up a copy of The Guardian.
It’s shrunk. Not quite tabloid, certainly not broadsheet.
Turns out it’s a UKP145M facelift and the new size is called ‘Berliner’.
There’s a great post here from Morgan McLintic.
Lots of other links – from the Press Gazette, the BBC and others.
I like the new size and format in the main paper, but I’m not sure G2 works – it’s comic-sized and I feel the format detracts from the content a little. Might just take a bit of getting used to. First impressions of the main paper are good though.
