Premium Collection

Newspapers have announced some of Australia’s and the World’s most remarkable events.  The role of newspapers in breaking news over the 20th Century has changed from a time delay of days to instant wireless coverage.  From the moon landing to the end of the second World War or the passing of a celebrity, a headline newspaper captures the moment succinctly and gives the event raw immediacy.

Demand for the editions covering special events makes them rarer and of greater value.  To cater for this, Paper World has a Premium Collection of newspapers available for purchase.  The events are listed below, along with dates.  Customers can then search our catalogue and purchase these unique titles.  Upon receipt of order, Paper World will contact the customer and confirm the newspaper’s contents and headline.  Paper World has limited numbers of these publications – once sold out, the catalogue will show that no more copies are available.
