The new-school purveyor of timeless journalism, McSweeney’s launched their
special edition, 320-page “San Francisco Panorama” this week, making it the
latest of the literary journal’s quarterly releases.
The McSweeney’s team created the 15″ x 22″ broadsheet paper over five months
with contributions from Stephen King, William T. Vollmann, Daniel Clowes and
Roddy Doyle-over 150 writers, artists and photographers in all.
Panorama’s design mimics a traditional paper, with magazine, food (click
above image for detail), comics and sports sections included in the hefty
edition along with hang-ready posters. Eye-catching diagrams and an overall
contemporary layout give it a modern appeal.
San Francisco’s Chronicle partnered with McSweeney’s to exclusively sell and
distribute the paper in the Bay Area and starting yesterday locals can buy
it for $5 from hawkers in the street. The rest of us can buy it online for
$16 or in bookstores. Check out sample pages, and get all the details here.
