The new format for the Irish Times

The new and old format Irish Times
When I read about the proposed new format for the Irish Times I was worried that they mean that they were switching to become a tabloid.  However, the change in page size is so small that I wonder why they even bothered. The page is exactly the same height as before and less than an inch narrowed (the picture on the right shows today's Irish Times pictured in front of an edition from last week for comparison).

On the other hand, the changes they made to the way the articles are laid out on the page are quite substantial and look great so I must say I am reassured that my beloved newspaper has not been ruined.
