Earthquake/Tsunami Front Pages via the HuffPost


My good friends at The Daily Beast has a gallery of earthquake/Tsunami front pages from Japanese newspapers — with helpful translations of the prominent headlines.

I had started to do my own gallery from pages posted at the Newseum, but the HuffPost beat me to it. Sometimes procrastination does pay off.

There are numbers of relief organizations that you can donate to to help the disaster survivors, but I’m putting my money down with MercyCorps.


To think of all of the “art” that I’ve created!


My good friends at the Max Wigram Gallery in London tipped me off to one of there current exhibitions by Marnie Hugonnier — tear sheets of The NYT, with the real art replaced with “art.”

For the nit pickers out there, my first reference to art in the first sentence is in newspaper lingo — anything that isn’t text/type is “art,” so photos, illustrations, logos, etc. are all called art.

The second reference to “art” means, of course, Art —  and all art is subjective, right?

No comment on what I think of Hugonnier’s works, but let’s just say that in my career I’ve created enough similar-type art to fill a couple of dozen galleries. The only thing different, in that in the newsroom, these pages with black holes for pictures are called dummies.
