Do six-column photos on A-1 help or hurt newspaper readership? Is it possible that TV books are actually part of the problem? If newspaper markets are all different, why do so many newspapers look the same?
The website of Brass Tacks Design offers its own answers to those questions and much more. Their take may or may not be right on any specific question, of course, but they do frame some pretty provocative questions.
What's more, the site is filled with gorgeous examples of great-looking newspaper pages. I don't often remember to cruise by and check it out, but when I do I generally feel rewarded.
