    I thought this might be kind of neat.

    Very Interesting Theme

    In my bookshelf I have a collection of old news papers. They are bound to keep better. People used to do that. This particular paper that I opened up was published on April 23, 1912 in Berlin, Germany. What I took the photos off is a reportage of the sinking of the Titanic. The paper has really yellowed from age, it is rather fragile, but I enjoy going through this frequently. It shows how in a way the reporting of things sensational has not changed at all.

    That's fascinating, especially the first picture of the gigantic iceberg with the deaths head added to it.

    Sensationalizing things has not changed much either. I wish I could read the article to see how that incident was approached. Was much opinion thrown in or was it strictly factual?

    Cool.

    The writing was rather factual actually, very thin though. I think they just did not have enough information at that point, it just had happened. But of course the pictures are painted or half painted. A little bit how it is done with PS today, just on paper or canvas.

    And of course the opulence of the ship and its passengers was shown. The report stretched over several issues. The paper itself was more of a large picture paper, not that much text. And all interspersed with other news of the week and little ads and fun stuff.

    It was one of those days to be inside, so I took another shot. A stack of magazines and papers from this time period. Not bound obviously

    Thank you Sarah. I love paper in all shapes and textures. Have worked with it a lot of course doing my art work on it. I will try to dig up some of those hand made papers with watermarks in them. Have to search in those places…

    Nothing artistic here. I was almost stymied with this one until I remembered what I had within easy reach!

    I took a shot at capturing a watermark on a handmade paper. This is an antique paper from my collection, a particular fine paper with a mark that is about 4 inches across. The mark is the depiction of Romulus and Remus suckling on the wolf.

    This paper was chain laid by hand, that is why the paper has distinct lines.

    Once I saw this challenge, I immediately thought of a coworker's desk. She has the worst possible organizational skills and cleanliness (as far as "junk" stuff) of anyone I know. Her desk usually has (I'm not exaggerating) about an elbow-to-wrist height of paper stacks laid all across her desk's surface. When you call her on her phone, she usually won't answer because she literally can't find it under the mess. Her computer keyboard rests atop piles of paper, her mouse is either hidden or about half as high as the monitor screen resting on top of stacks of paper, etc... Unfortunately for me, either someone cleaned her desk for her (everyone always threatens it), or she actually cleaned it. Either way, the lighting off the paper from her amazingly clean (in comparison to normal) desk was somewhat nice, so here it is:



    Since I work in a library, we have stacks of newspapers. I didn't have to go far to take this shot:
    They say, "Practice makes perfect," yet they also say, "Nobody's perfect". I don't get it.
