Newspaper Sizes

The broadsheet newspaper size is the largest of the various newspaper formats and is characterized by long vertical pages. The term derives from types of popular prints – usually just of a single sheet – sold on the streets and containing various types of matter, from ballads to political satire. The first broadsheet newspaper was the Dutch Courante, published in 1618. Newspapers currently using the broadsheet format include; The Daily Telegraph in the UK, The National Post in Canada, Die Zeit in Germany, The Times of India, The Japan Times and USA Today. The Berliner format is used by many European newspapers, including; The Guardian in the UK, Expresso in Portugal, The University Observer in Ireland, Le Monde in France and La Repubblica in Italy. As the term “tabloid” has become synonymous with down-market newspapers in some areas, some small-format papers which claim a higher standard of journalism refer to themselves as “compact” newspapers instead, however both are generally the same size. Some newspapers that use this format include; The Sun and The Times in the UK, NRC Handelsblad in the Netherlands, Berlingske Tidende in Denmark and the Daily Telegraph in Australia.
