London reflections 3: Berliner format!
I must say I like the Berliner format, which has more height than a tabloid, but due to its smaller size than the traditional broadsheet edition, it is much easier to read on the underground (you can see all three sizes, as well as a sheet of A4 paper, in the picture).
The Guardian’s “Sunday edition”, The Observer, is still printed in the old format but will go Berliner sometime early in 2006. After reading The Guardian on the underground Saturday, and The Observer the following day, I must say I prefer the new format and I also like the new typeface (Guardian Egyptian). But as you can tell from the entry below, what I miss in The Guardian is Hugo Young.
