Strange Crops

I have been reading newspapers for 30 years now, on and off. I started with the comics, then moved to news and features. And I read the sports pages, but I admit to not being a huge sports fan.

I’ve worked for small news papers and mid-sized newspapers. I’ve shot photos, edited photos and done some page layout. Wrote a story or two, too.

I even got to witness the Society for Newspaper Design do its annual judging, which was very cool.

But I’ve never seen a page design – in a daily newspaper – quite like this.

A trapezoidal crop? A triangular ad?
