Front Pages Around the World

Newseum’s “Today’s Front Pages” lets you see and read the current front page from hundreds of newspapers in dozens of countries. They also keep an archive of front pages for historically important days such as presidential elections, terrorist attacks, and natural disasters. Their November 5th “Obama Victory” collection includes 741 front pages from 67 countries at www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/default_archive.asp?fpArchive=110508. Their January 21st “Obama Inauguration” collection includes 770 front pages from 74 countries at www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/default_archive.asp?fpArchive=012109.

Each front page is linked to a high-quality PDF of that page, and you can click to go to that newspaper’s website. You can choose a front page by clicking a thumbnail image, by choosing from an alphabetical list organized by region, or by clicking on a map. Explore it at www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/
