Bye bye back page
The Globe today reports this tidbit, in the midst of a James Adams article about the relaunch gala coming up for Maclean's: the back page column, a staple of the magazine for years, is moving inside as part of the radical new design to be unveiled at the Garth Drabinsky (who dat?) extravaganza on November 15. Paul Wells may have hinted at something to this effect in his blog the other day:
We wonder whether this a pleasant surprise for Wells, who was lured over to Maclean's from the National Post by the prestigious bully pulpit the back page provided. No word on what's in its place in a page that has traditionally been an anchor in many magazines.
Le Monde is relaunching on Monday. What the heck, everyone's doing it. You might even be surprised by what you find much closer to home, say a week later.
