L.A. Times Book Review redesigns to emphasize web coverage

Mar 30 2007

The Los Angeles Times will debut its new Sunday book coverage on April 15 as part of a new section called 'Opinion' that will combine the Book Review with the Currents section.

Tim Rutten, an associate features editor at the paper, explains, "They are two distinct sections, but they will be bound together. One of the sections will be printed upside down and both the Book Review and Opinion will have their own cover and back page .... It's to save money and newsprint."

The Sunday book review will lose at least two printed pages as part of cost-cutting, but Rutten said book coverage will be expanded in the newspaper throughout the week and on the Times's redesigned Web site, which is still in the works.

The goal for the newspaper is to have some Web-only content—which may include reviews and columns—that link to the paper version and vice versa. "The Web site becomes the hub and these [the Sunday section and the print coverage throughout the paper] become spokes on the wheel."
