The front pages

What this page is all about

Who says you can't judge a book by its cover? That is exactly what newspapers want readers - and, more importantly, potential readers - to do. 
Print journalism may have changed beyond recognition since its heyday in the first half of the 20th century, but the front page, and specifically the splash head, remain paramount.
About five million national newspapers are sold each day, so they are seen by between ten and fifteen million people. But the front pages have an audience way beyond that.
Besides telling readers what is going on, they serve as posters that shout their editor's (or proprietor's) opinions in huge capital letters to send a message to millions of people who will never read the full story. They are shown on news bulletins, they are quoted from on the radio, they are tweeted.
So here are this year's offerings all in one place
