This week at the Wall Street Journal...

This week the Wall Street Journal is unveiling a redesign (link requires NYT registration), with a bit of color on the cover. Virginia Postrel (who's in-progress follow-up to The Future and Its Enemies will be about aesthetics) thinks this'll be the design equivalent of New Coke, but the Asian edition (which I've been reading lately) already has the blues and pastels they're describing (we're not talking about USA Today color here), and it's a suprisingly subtle difference. We'll see.
