Trends: Redesigns that Cut Corners
Two recent unrelated new items about redesigns of Esquire UK (featuring among other changes also a change [also termed manbagging by guardian] of the size) and ‘compact-ising the ‘New York Times’ led me to do a Google on magazine formats.
And I came across this interesting article by Art Kleiner that features the history of magazines from formats perspective. Must read. Though it talks more about how we place and have been placing pictures and text on the page.
