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.

The book was amazing (history of Leeds FC, brilliant. Unfortunately was due to arrive 7-13 and didn’t arrive until two days later. I had actually rung them to ask if could arrive by 11th. They were apologetic and refunded postage. Good gesture but present didn’t arrive for birthday.

Didn’t get the product

I ordered the book over two weeks ago and told it had been despatched and yet have had nothing delivered nor any communication from in the book regarding my complaint. No one sad boy is without a birthday present

I purchased a personalised Winnie the Pooh book for a christening

I purchased a personalised Winnie the Pooh book for my grandson’s christening. Having only a week until the event I paid £6.99 for priority delivery. They gave a due date of 7-8th January, which was 2-3 days in advance of when I needed the book. However, after waiting in both days, the book didn’t arrive. On 8th January I emailed to ask when I was likely to receive the book, to date I haven’t received any reply (it’s now 10 days later). The book eventually arrived 10th January (having been posted on 9th) but I didn’t receive it as we had already left to travel for the christening. I emailed again asking if I could have a refund of the priority delivery charge since the book hadn’t even been posted until after the stated arrival date. I received no reply. Whilst the product is ok the service has fallen well below expected standards and I was left embarrassed with no gift for such a special event.

The making of a good company is how they handle customers when things go wrong.Had there been ANY quality control before orders are dispatched my problem would have been spotted. Such a shame customer goodwill is not something this company offers. Adrian HAYNES Haynes Explains Marriage
