Breaking News: Old Newspapers Are Better Than New Ones

November 15, 2017 ·

Old Newspapers Rolled Up
A couple of old newspapers rolled up. Excellent for decoration purposes. The frontmost newspaper has been oxidizing all the way since 1934.

Turns out. The older a newspaper become, the better they are. At least if one is to use it for decoration purposes. It was a late November night in the year twothousandseventeen that the ground breaking discovery was made. As the rain pounded against the windows, and a strong north wind rattled the glass, a fresh, off the press edition of "Mitt i Salem" flew through my mail slot. I held it up towards the waning light and scrutinized its surface for any sign of worthiness. It just was not to be compared with the rolled-up, different prints I had standing on my shelf—some of which dated all the way back to 1934. Read more.

Ernest Hare Reading a Newspaper
Ernest Hare is reading a newspaper — an old one.

The Old Newspaper WordPress Theme grew from a few simple ideas. First of all: Old newspapers look good. Second: it should not be too cluttered, and focus on the reading experience—like an old newspaper. Thirdly: I simply wanted to make a WordPress theme. The theme is aiming to capture the feeling of holding a classic newspaper in your lap. Those large headlines, and that tightly fitted grid on the front page. Your room almost turns Black & White around you—(hopefully not). In this digital version of that paper, the article grid is responsive, refitting the news articles as your resize your browser. You may sit with a smartphone in your lap instead, but the feeling is still there. When your eyes have passed across the grid of articles, you select one that entices you, and enter into the reading experience. Read more.
