While The Independent played the typography card today, The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph played the big picture one.

In both cases, good pictures, good cropping and good front page design.

The “viewspaper” of London devotes its front page to the Tony Blair years.

Another example of bold, provocative and powerful design just with typography.

Well done!

UPDATE: A perfect match between The Independent and the jacket of a friend, a journalist in London, who sent me a picture.

As he says in his message:

“Together they looked fabulous among commuters.

They made the other suits and newspapers look very bland in comparison… “

I am sure.

Great cover.

And great jacket.

Only in London!

TONY BLAIR RESIGNS

The Guardian plays with photos.

Blair is the first British prime minister since Harold Wilson in 1976 to leave at a time of his own choosing, rather than by losing an election or being forced out by the party.

See “The Blair Years,” an excellent multimedia presentation at Guardian Unlimited.
