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.
