Indian newspapers

The group of people behind Aksharaya organised an amazing collection of Indian newspapers. This was exhibited during this year’s Typography day at IIT Bombay.

According to the office of the Registrar of Newspapers for India, the total number of registered newspapers, as on 31 March 2011, was 82,222 (yes, over eighty two thousands). That is newspapers in various vernacular languages and English. Here are just a couple of pictures from the exhibition, for your viewing pleasure.
