Evolution of the Hawaiian Star, 1893 to 1912
UC San Diego student Cyrus Kiani animates 5,930 front pages from The Hawaiian Star, from 1893 to 1912. Pretty much everything on the page gets bigger — the columns, headers, and pictures — while the physical size of the page stays the same. Too bad it only goes up to 1912. It would've been fun to see the birth of the giant front page photo.
(I thought I saw something like this done for The New York Times front page or online homepage, but I can't find it.)
