, the Swedish newspaper in America - since 1872. From longhand writing and backwards typesetting - setting one letter at a time - to a, now, strong presence in interactive, mobile, rich, and social media outlets, Nordstjernan has grown from a arduously composed paper to a seamless news aggregate for the occurrences that matter to you.
We present to you, not only the history of newspaper production in the late 1800s, but also the burgeoning, beginning world of immigration in America, and especially in New York City: how many nation cultures like Swedes, made their world complete with custom-tailored news sources in the new world.
Made with love for and many thanks to all of our friends and readers around the world.
