The Illustrated London News Year Book - Gift Details

The Illustrated London Newspaper was launched in 1842, capturing the vibrancy of London life. Illustrated by prominent artists and engravers, the newspaper established itself as the world’s first fully illustrated paper; it was a revolution in journalism – fit for the paper’s release during the Industrial era.

As for the book itself, the covers in the edition are determined by any Year chosen between 1930 to 1988. The Illustrated London News was a weekly publication from 1930 up until 1971, where the paper then became a monthly edition. Therefore, any Year picked between 1930 to 1971 will receive 52 front pages from their selected year, plus 10 iconic front pages, whilst any Date selected from 1972 onwards will receive 12 front pages, plus 50 iconic front pages.

Collected in this Illustrated London News Year Book are the most vivid pictorial newspaper covers released from the publication, hand bound in a special edition. The cover is embossed with the recipient’s Name and the Year you select for the book, whilst a Message is included on the opening title page. The book provides recipients with a glimpse into the enigmatic Victorian era and thereafter.
