    Is this image a postcard? This Reader feels she’s seen it as a postcard before.

    What a northern euro-centric newstand.

    It is indeed a postcard–good spot! It was given to me by my dear friend Elinor, so I’m sure about it’s origins. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a popular one.

    I don’t quite understand how these newspapers are organized. It doesn’t seem to be alphabetically, or by country or language.

    One last note: I’m digging the typography of ‘de Volkskrant’

    I want a newsstand like this in my home. Stocked daily. May print journalism continue forever.
