The French Newspaper 'Le Matin' Vintage Postcards

This vintage postcard cutie is serious about the news. This newspaper hat was folded using Le Matin (The Morning). The first issue was hot off of the press in 1884. Newspapers were much shorter in that era. They were typically 4-6 pagers.

This morning daily would have cost a whopping 5 cents. Le Matin was known for its catchy tone and brave reporting. The French language was beginning to be anglicized in print more and more. Le Matin was the first newpaper in France to print the words jazz orchestra and jazband in 1918. (jaz with one z!) They were quite the trend-setters.

Here is a Matisse from his Jazz series!
