Oh, and the Berliner Guardian

Reading Lisa's blog reminded me I was going to give my two-penneth (sp?!) about the Berliner. Great size and shape, the layout's good. But the headline font is barely distinguishable from the rest: needs to be bolder. And don't get me started on all the letters kissing the feet (and ass) of the Guardian, heralding the Berliner as a work of art both in terms of content and layout. It's a newspaper like all the rest. Don't trust it.

Trusting blogs any better?

Sorry about my bad dialect spelling ("two-penn'th" would have been better?) and I agree that the letters saying how 'fabulous darling' the new Grauniad is comes over as a bit much.

My concern is, on the advert when that little 'e' cuts off the white space filling the old shape of the Guardian, is the implication that the cut-off paper gets thrown away?

Agree about the headline font...

I trust certain blogs implicitly, you know that :)

Dear Guardian, everyone who works there must be a genius, I haven't seen anything this good since Guernica, yours truly A. Sycophant PS please publish my letter.

Is that actually reprinted from the Guardian? :)
