Newspaper News

I really like the cut of the Guardian's new gib. Or I should say theguardian. The Berliner format feels comfortable; colour photo reproduction is good quality and is being used with taste and restraint; and the typography and page design are superb. I've not yet got used to the upper/lower-case bold and double-bold hierarchy of section titles and running headers - but the new font, Guardian Egyptian, is elegant, intelligent and highly legible. My only complaint is that the ink still comes off on your hands.
