Every Front Page Of The New York Times Since 1852


(via) In this 55-second animation, Josh Begley’s “Every NYT Front Page Since 1852” shows exactly that in dizzyingly rapid succession. At about the 30-second mark a pattern emerges that becomes irreversible: the introduction of imagery. What begins as a novelty transitions to facet, to fixture, to focal point that eventually gains colour, prominence and pride of place. It’s a fascinating thing to watch, revealing – in less than a minute and with no narration – how much the nature of print media has changed in the modern era. To wit: less text, more images. The core consequence of such change is not so easy to explain, but Begley gamely takes a swing at it with his four word video description: “The news is breaking”.
