The Observer is the oldest Sunday newspaper in the world. Founded in 1791, its
first issue promised to be "unbiased by prejudice... uninfluenced by party...
whose principle is independence... whose object is truth." Under a series of
distinguished editors, most notably J.L. Garvin, the London-based paper has made
good on that commitment.

More recently, the Observer was named Newspaper of the Year 1993 in the British
Press Awards.

In 1993 the Observer was acquired by Guardian Publications, and now has a
circulation of 525,000.  The Observer offers a broad range of news and features
covering politics, business, sport, entertainment and more. Each issue includes
two magazines and a Book Review pull-out section.
