Now that's cool as hell... - Mark's Journal
Now that's cool as hell...
TimesI don't know, but I assume, that this web site is always available... showing the front pages of the top 50 U.S. newspapers.


Today, as you can imagine, every one has the same theme. You can click each one and then download a PDF for it. I've just downloaded the two I thought were coolest, The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune. (There are certainly others I can appreciate from a graphic design standpoint, which is where I think this web site is looking.)

Not surprisingly, many of the world's morning papers followed the same theme, though I'm quite amused that DeMorgen, which must've gone to bed before early results were in, ran a double-sided cover calling both Obama and McCain the winner. :-)

The Newseum is like that, but 700+ newspapers. More cluttered, though. "Please be patient with the site, we are experiencing a high volume of traffic today." -- I wonder why?


They do a physical version as well outside their building in DC, which is cool but of limited value if you're not actually there.

Crud, I should have walked the Newseum today! That would have been cool. C'est la vie.

I have a copy of today's Washington Post folded up in my bag. Apparently it's a pretty hot commodity. Perhaps I should attempt to sell it (although I was planning to tear out one of the editorials and send it to my dad). Perhaps I should be more sentimental.

That is really neat!

really interesting use of large near-full bleed color covers on a lot of papers (including on our local rag, the oregonian, which i thought had a very nice cover, actually.)

something to be said for the understated and straightforward look the chicago sun-times put together, but of all the ones on that page, the hartford courant doublespread is perhaps the most visually striking.
