Collecting Newspapers

The Fine Books & Collections Magazine blog has a fine post about collecting old newspapers. I, for a time, collected a few old Harper's Weekly editions because it contained the artwork of one of my favorite artists, Winslow Homer. I then removed those illustrations, had them framed and now they're proudly displayed on my living room wall. I probably did a bad thing by destroying the newspaper as a whole but I can live with it.

Pictured above: Winslow Homer's "Russian Ball," from the November 21, 1863 edition of Harper's Weekly.
