You'll love this because...

Uncover a journalistic revolution and discover the pages of the world’s first fully illustrated newspaper.

  • Personalise the front cover with any name
  • Features a diverse selection of newspaper covers collated in an A4 hand-bound book
  • Full of illustrations from prominent artists and engravers
  • Pick any year from 1930 – 1988
  • Add a luxury gift box for a thoughtful finishing touch

Discover a journalistic revolution with this personalised illustrated London year book, which collates a vibrant selection of pictorial newspaper covers from the world’s first, fully illustrated newspaper: The Illustrated London News. Founded in 1842, at the height of the Industrial era, the paper—which set out to portray London’s social history—gained its reputation during a time of almost unprecedented change. Notable artists and engravers skillfully created the artwork for each edition, making it a truly stunning and visual chronicle of London life.

The covers included in the book depend on the year chosen, between 1930 and 1988. Once a weekly publication, the Illustrated London News became a monthly edition from 1971. Therefore, any year selected between 1930 and 1971 comprises 52 front pages from the chosen year, with 10 iconic front pages, while any date from 1972 onwards comprises 12 front pages, with 50 iconic front pages.

How to Personalise the Illustrated London News Book

Personalise the book with the recipient’s name, up to 12 characters over one line, which will be embossed on the cover, alongside the chosen year. Add a special touch to this gift by including a personal dedication message, of up to 150 characters over 5 lines, in its opening pages.

Further Information

The Illustrated London News Year Book is a selection of vivid pictorials, with dates available from 1930 to 1988. The edition is available in A4 premium hardback.

Emma Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 20 July

Ordered the personalised hardback book but it fell apart within 1 day

Ordered the personalised hardback Thomas and Friends book last week for my sons 2nd birthday. It arrived this week and although the book is lovely the quality is terrible. We read it twice and 4 of the pages have come loose from the book! We now can’t read it anymore and certainly can’t let him look at it. We are thoroughly disappointed particularly as it’s not a cheap item. Expected more and want to make sure people know what to expect if they buy from this company!!

A5 size

A5 size, I know apparently it's in the description. Poor quality paper. Still haven't got the gift box. I spent 23 quid on this...not worth it at all.
