Newspaper map of the world

July 14, 2010

The Newseum in Washington, D.C., has a fascinating  Newspaper Map of the World that allows you to read front pages of newspapers around the world just by mouse-clicking on the city location on the map.  You can also get a display of newspaper front pages by region, and access to a newspaper’s web site if it has one.

Not every nation or region of the world participates.  There are 24 newspaper front pages from Germany, but only one from France and only four from the entire continent of Africa.  Still, it is interesting to see the newspapers from the different, even if you can’t read the language, and English-language publications aren’t limited to English-speaking countries.

The display includes newspapers from every U.S. state and editions the Stars and Stripes, the U.S. armed forces newspaper, published in Germany and Japan.
