I loved looking at the local newspapers wherever I travelled in Asia. The layout of the Taiwan newspaper was very different to "western" newspapers. Note the paper is read from right to left in columns.

  1. I suppose our newspapers would look just as difficult to them.

    I wonder if the dark columns are advertisements?

  3. Very different newspaper design. I assume this is from your time in Japan -- 20+ years ago. Newspaper presses have changed dramatically since then. I've seen the change in papers here but I wonder if they changed there. And, of course, most papers are going online. Every year fewer print papers are available.
