To create an authentic newspaper I want the sizes of my work to be realistic. I looked at the sizes of three newspapers. These included The Journal, a National Broadsheet, The Shields Gazette and Sunderland Echo, both local newspapers.
The Sizes for the newspapers are as follow, these measurements are when the magazine is open.
I noticed that both the local newspapers are of similar size and there is only a slight difference in the height of the newspaper. That is why I will make the size of my magazine 58.1cmx37cm so it follows the same convention of pre existing local newspapers.
