Beautiful Don Dorrigo Gazette

After visiting Dorrigo several times I finally remembered to drop in and purchase (for $1) a copy of the hot-metal typeset "Don Dorrigo and Guy Fawkes Advocate".

The paper has been published since January 8, 1910 and is the last known newspaper in Australia to still be printed this way.

The paper has no photographs and the small type is somewhat wonky but it has a charm of its own.

Mostly local advertising but with a few interesting stories. Click on the images here and view up close to really enjoy it.

There's a Wikipedia page and an ABC story with video showing the production process.
