Students of newspaper design might want to take a look at the “Day of Design” project. Howard Finberg and four other members of the Society of Newspaper Design collected front pages of more than150 newspapers in 1993. They are now in the process of collecting fronts of the same papers 20 years later. Here’s a list of those still to be collected for 2013.
The 1993 gallery includes a map showing where all the papers are located and jpgs of the fronts.
In addition, the site offers collections of front pages from specific events such as the 1991 invasion of Iraq, the 1979 crash of American Airlines Flight 191 and the 1983 downing of Korean Air Lines Flight 007.
