Last issue of De Pers
After little more than five years, Dutch free daily De Pers has closed down.
The last issue – March 30 – shows an empty glass on the cover (click for larger version).
Covers of the paper were always special, as was the content that always differed substantially from its competitors. The pdf-version can be downloaded from the website.
Notwithstanding the ambitions, De Pers never made any money. Also the deal with Mecom-daughter Wegener did not save the paper.
Remaining editiors want to relaunch the paper as a online-only paid model. Almost 11,000 people have said they want to be a subscriber of the new paper.
