Those old, old newspapers

February 26, 2004

Maud links to a story saying author Nicholson Baker has penned an art book devoted to the old New York World. She also links to the American Newspaper Repository, which despite the unappetizing title has some very tasty examples of newspaper illustration from the early 20th centry. An example.

In the small-world department, I credit Bill Walsh for introducing me to Nicholson Baker’s books; and the link Maud provided goes to the site of a guy I interviewed way back when.

Speaking of Bill, I missed his latest Sharp Point last week, when he weighed in on Web site and e-mail.
