Indian Newspaper Mastheads Exhibition
29 November, 2012

This is a huge post, but incredibly worthwhile if you can make it through the gallery. These 99 images show only a fraction of the content that this dense exhibition had to offer.

Also, be sure to read a bit more about the collection below the images.

This display was a major highlight of the Typography Day 2012 conference in Mumbai, India. Organized by the typocentric group Aksharaya, hundreds of individuals from around India sent in local and regional newspapers to assemble this significant collection.

Present here are more than 500 newspapers from every corner of the country*. The information accompanying the exhibition stated that there were 10 scripts and 26 languages represented in the show; according to their website, there were 16 languages and 12 scripts shown. Regardless of the correct figures, there is a rich variety of languages, letterforms, and styles that can be easily appreciated and referenced here.

Aksharaya has promised to now digitally archive this entire collection and make it available online for everyone! This will be quite an exciting and useful project, let’s keep our fingers that it actually happens.

More about this exhibition from Aksharaya’s website.

 

* This exhibition only contains a tiny sliver of India’s unbelievable newspaper assortment. As of 2011, there are over 80,000 registered newspapers!
