Solidarity With Our Amsterdam-Based Weekly Brethren

Posted By on Mon, Mar 31, 2008 at 9:47 PM

The Amsterdam Weekly, a free alt-weekly in Amsterdam, has been abandoned by its financial backers. In a crazy scheme to keep the paper afloat, they're asking for on-line donations ... for five euros (about 7.50 in worthless U.S. currency), you can buy a part of a page of the paper. It's worth checking out the scheme here: http://forsale.amsterdamweekly.nl/welcome.

Each page is divided into 204 blocks, and each block that gets paid for gets printed. The cover of the paper might look like a jigsaw puzzle that's missing a few dozen pieces.

It was named by the Design Museum in London as one of the "most inspiring and innovative design projects in Europe over the past two years," and it's at least worth checking out their Web site for a look at alt-Amsterdam, the alt-est city in the world.
