New look for Monday Paper

Regular readers of Monday Paper will note that our publication has a new look this week.
Our intention was to give the newspaper a fresh design while at the same time enhancing its readability.

For those who have an interest in these matters, you will note that we have changed our font from Bookman to Bookman Antiqua, and upped the font size slightly from 8.5 points to 9 points.

In addition, we now have five columns instead of four and we are using a ragged right setting, which is easier on the eye.

Our masthead too has a neater, cleaner look with more white space around it. We are enthusiastic about our spruced-up appearance and would welcome your feedback. You can e-mail Andrea Weiss on with your comments.

"The chaos theory is a new theory invented by scientists panicked by the thought that the public were beginning to understand the old ones." - Mike Barfield.
