Want the newspaper from the day of your birth?

Came across paperworld.com.au this afternoon . . .

Paper World offers a wide range of original major daily newspapers, magazines and other date related memorabilia from Australia and New Zealand dating back over 100 years.

What a nifty little pressie for someone. They go for $99 a pop – which, I think is quite reasonable with you think about it.

A friend of mine, Anthony, bought me something similar a few years back – you can go to the State Library of NSW, go through the microfiche of old newspapers and print out the front cover from a friends day of birth, all for a few bucks. Laminate it and you’ve got yourself a nice little gift too.
