Tropes having to do with newspapers, magazines and other non-book printed media.
These media were produced by using a variety of methods for staining pressed sheets of wood pulp with letters and images. They were required to be ''physically transported'' to the consumer, requiring large numbers of "copies" to be made of each article. In spite of a very restricted capability for user-edits (all changes made were local to the "copy" of the article, not visible elsewhere), these media were in many ways considered precursors of the Web.
