Admittedly, the eyes of the hardreading staff are not what they used to be (all that hard reading and whatnot), so we might have missed this previously, but we sure noticed it today: The Boston Globe has trimmed its Friday Weekend section by a half inch in length and width.
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.
