Issue 33 of McSweeney's Quarterly will be a one-time-only, Sunday-edition sized newspaper--the San Francisco Panorama. It'll have news (actual news, tied to the day it comes out) and sports and arts coverage, and comics (sixteen pages of glorious, full-color comics, from Chris Ware and Dan Clowes and Art Spiegelman and many others besides) and a magazine and a weekend guide, and will basically be an attempt to demonstrate all the great things print journalism can (still) do, with as much first-rate writing and reportage and design (and posters and games and on-location Antarctic travelogues) as we can get in there. Expect journalism from Andrew Sean Greer, fiction from George Saunders and Roddy Doyle, dispatches from Afghanistan, and much, much more. We're going to try to sell this thing on the street in San Francisco, but it'll also go out to our subscribers and be in bookstores all over.… (lisätietoja)

In this experiment, the McSweeney's crew decided to celebrate everything that was great about traditional print journalism and the large canvas provided by newsprint -- kind of a eulogy to the dying format, and a call for its rebirth. What they ended up creating is an overwhelming thing of beauty -- beautiful because of the full-color printing and the striking layouts, and overwhelming because it is over 300 pages long. This is a seriously intense newspaper...

The 33rd installment of McSweeney's Quarterly Concern comes in the form of The San Francisco Panorama, a full-size Sunday-style newspaper. An enclosed informational pamphlet on the publication notes that the editors wanted to show all the various things for which large-scale print newspapers may still be not only a viable form but also the most appropriate. They write at one point "This process has provided great insight into the magnificent operations that daily newspapers do. How they do this every day we will never know. That they must continue has never been clearer."

This newspaper was designed as a way to allow writers to "go deep," and there are several long-form pieces of journalism here, including an encyclopedic article by William Vollman on a battle between mining interests and Native Americans, a long essay on the Afghan elections, and a report on the Bay Bridge renovations (through a partnership with the non-profit SF Public Press project). Shorter journalism pieces include an article on a disastrous real estate strategy in SF, and as good an infographic on the Congo military conflict as any I've seen.

Like any newspaper, this includes several key sections, including Sports (profiles of some SF teams, plus a very funny 8-page retrospective on the 2009 World Series written by Stephen King); food (a full-page illustrated procedure manual for butchering a lamb, a piece on SF's farmers' markets, and L.E. Leone on "roadkill stew"); comics (all original pieces, including "Sorro, The Gloomy Bandit") and a 3-D crossword puzzle. The Arts section included a very funny look at the differences between movie posters and DVD covers, and an essay by Kevin Collier on participating in t.v. studio audiences.

The 112-page stand-alone magazine section included some excellent writing, including a day-by-day account of hiking Spain's Camino de Santiago, a profile of the AK muckraker who dogged Sarah Palin's gubernatorial term, and some interesting short features, including a call for the penny's value to be increased to 2 cents, and Chip Kidd making some suggestions for a redesign of the Amtrak ticket.

In the 96-page book review section, also standalone, along with a tremendous selection of reviews, the editors have included a list of book titles translated into other languages and then retranslated, with hilarious results, several pieces of new fiction (including a story by Roddy Doyle) and an essay on choosing the cover models for romance novels.

All told, the package contains 120 broadsheet pages, plus 96 pages in the book review and 112 pages in the magazine. The year-long project brought in more than 200 contributors, and must stand, in these difficult times for the form, as a monument to the overstuffed Sunday newspaper that continues to have so much potential.
