As The Ticket reported here the other day, the historic election this week of Barack Obama to the presidency has caused a run on tBarack Obama election front pagehe nation's newspapers, as thousands upon thousands seek souvenir copies of the next day's editions.

Lines at The Times' downtown headquarters in recent days have often run around the block, and extra personnel have been assigned to continue sales of the Wednesday edition on Saturday and Sunday and into next week.

But now for those of you who are into newspaper front pages, there's a new website that's collected scores of newspaper front pages on that day from all around the world. We'll publish a sampling here and on the jump.

The new website is here.
