Another Berliner

January 8th, 2006 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

From today The Observer is published in the same Berliner format as the Guardian has since about September.

They didn’t make as much of a song and dance about it as the Guardian did, nor has the reading public been making as much fuss about it.

It all looks pretty good to me. The size is much easier to handle and the layout is a lot clearer. It now feels a lot more like a ‘Sunday Guardian’ than before. I can’t understand how the paper seems less bulky than before but at the same time seems to have more in it. Usually the main paper is very light on content, but today it felt more substantial.

The G2-sized television supplement is handy but best of all was finding out on page 2 of the main paper that there is a new African Soul Rebels tour!

The new Observer suffers from the same problem as the old one though – the shops in Broadfield only stock a couple of copies. If you don’t get there early you have to start hunting around town for it.
