The New Review

The Observer

The New Review is a unique supplement in the quality newspaper market. Alongside coverage of the best new arts, culture and books - and interviews with stars - we also cover science, politics, current affairs and tech. Our readers tell us that this range and depth is what they most enjoy about the section. They do not come to us for lifestyle gloss, but for smart ideas and thoughtful writing to help them navigate these turbulent times.

Our team of renowned writers and critics includes Stewart Lee, David Mitchell, Tim Adams, Rachel Cooke, critics Laura Cumming (art), Rowan Moore (architecture) and Susannah Clapp (theatre). Design is integral to our brand - each week we aim for a fresh, eye-catching section that includes regular slots showcasing photography and graphic design.

We set the bar high for our arts and books coverage with a clear commitment to supporting the culture sector and a long-standing dedication to criticism. As other publications have cut back on reviews we have increased the space we devote to them - we are the last remaining Sunday paper with weekly dance reviews and an architecture column.

The covers of the three editions submitted here illustrate our approach. There’s an exclusive interview with the actor Andrew Scott talking candidly about love, loneliness and fame; Ruby Wax opening up about her recent breakdown and slow recovery and, finally, a surprisingly upbeat conversation with six high flyers including Rory Cellan-Jones, Jeremy Paxman and Mark Mardle on the lows and highs of living with Parkinsons.

The New Review regularly hits over two million page views per week and this year the Observer print edition's market share increased once again.
