Discover a journalistic revolution with this personalized 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 Personalize the Illustrated London News Book
Personalize the book with the recipient’s name, up to 22 characters over one line, which will be embossed on the cover alongside the chosen year. Add a special touch to this gift by adding a personal dedication message, of up to 150 characters over five 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 premium hardcover and measures 12.5 x 15”

I think it’s a lovely little book and although I am pleased with it for my grandson I am slightly disappointed that the grammar doesn’t really make sense. It reads in the plural, rather than in the singular as it’s about just my grandson not grandsons Anyway I’m sure when we read it to him we can over come that.
