Wednesday Inspiration: Newspaper Typography

Newspapers. They can be free, paid, old, new, boring, interesting, trustworthy, irresponsible, or, well, you name it. And they are still our daily addiction when it comes to news. Sometimes they are so embedded in our consciousness that we might not even need to see the title to know what publication we’re talking about. Only the fonts will do. Take The New York Times, for instance. The fonts are just as famous as the publication itself. They are part of the history of the newspaper and most likely will be a big part of its future too.

Below you have 15 famous American and British newspapers. Surely, some are on your favorite fonts list already. Here they are, in no particular order, but with very different histories:
