So the folks at the hipster lit journal McSweeney's are producing a celebration of newsprint, a reimagined newspaper sort of like what your Strib or PiPress would look like if designers designed one paper a month and publishers could afford Michael Chabon and Stephen King and charge $16 an issue.

Going by the just-released media kit, it looks pretty beautiful, and could be quite a meaty read as well. Check out the full, mouthwatering tease here. The 380-page San Francisco Panorama will be out in early December.
