From the Globe’s ePaper, here’s the A section, full size (396 x 718).

And here’s the Weekend section, full size (393 x 710).

Doesn’t seem like much difference, but multiply by about 220,000 papers and you’re talking real money. The question is, will the rest of the paper get downsized as well, or is this just a one (lopped) off?

Our guess? The Globe turns smaller all around.
