This Is The Last Handwritten Newspaper

Not only is The Musalman written by hand - at a time when printed newspapers are dying like sick lepers - it's produced by a team of only four scribes. And it's not just handwritten - it's transcribed in calligraphy. These people work. Hard.

The Musalman has been operating in India since 1927, and has never had an employee quit - the only reason they leave the paper is because they're dead. That is what you might call dedication - four Urdu calligraphers in an 800 square foot room, cranking out newspapers for very little pay. Do not expect an iPad edition. [via NiemanLabs]
