Since the dawn of civilization, people have always shared news and stories with one another. At first, these were passed through word of mouth. Then, we learned to transcribe these thoughts to more permanent means, such as through paper, stone, and metal.
One of the precursors of newspapers was the Chinese imperial ‘bulletins’. Later on, the Romans began publishing a sort of gazette, containing political news, trials, and military campaigns. But the actual newspaper that we know of today didn’t kick off until the invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg.
Whether you’re into the traditional paper form or you prefer digital media, you can’t go wrong with these newspaper fonts. Start telling your stories using one – or more – of these cool typography sets.
