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

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.
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.

Pleased with quick delivery
Pleased with quick delivery, lovely story for my Great Grandson who is 2half years old. Disapointed with the actual quality overall for the price you charged, regarding the quality of the thiness of the paper. Was expecting thicker pages.

90th Birthday Gift
We bought this for a relative's 90th Birthday present who lives in the south of England and as we live in the north it was delivered directly to him. It arrived on the day of his Birthday and he was absolutely delighted with it. He wouldn't have been happier if we'd given him £1,000. Thank you so much for a unique gift
