So for those of you who were interested for TKOL "newspaper album", here's a few snippets regarding newspaper storage / preservation; credit to the book "Saving Stuff" written by Don Williams, Senior Conservator of the Smithsonian (so, he knows what he's talking about).
I uploaded larger pictures so it would be easier to read.
Here are some of his general tips for storage:
These are more detailed instructions for storage, based on how long you want to maintain original quality: "Quick 'n' Dirty", "The Middle Road", and "Pharoh's tomb".
Note that the description for "Quick 'n' Dirty" refers to a section earlier in the same chapter. This is the appropriate section:
The sentence that follows after the bottom of the page is:
"If you leave them alone and don't touch them, the Quick 'n' Dirty Method is good for maybe forty years. But if you often take [them] out to peruse them, you're looking at perhaps five years without noticeable deterioration."
And since he was referring to comic books there, it would likely be less time for newspapers since they are more fragile.
He also has storage tips for vinyl albums, but I can post that later once people receive the package in the mail. His basic tip though is to store vinyl albums upright with something holding it up on both sides (but not too tight).
