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.

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 premium hardcover and measures 12.5 x 15”

ISBN 978-1-78271-249-7

Really first class service, I had the book delivered 48 hours after my order. I did pay for next day delivery but it wasn’t expensive. The book took my breath away, it was top quality and so beautifully presented.

Excellent service and product.

Excellent service and product. Bought as a 50th Birthday Gift for a work colleague. Can't wait to present it to him. Also bought the boxing one for my husband at Christmas and he loved it.

Bella Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 3 Aug 2021

Not impressed with customer service

I raised an issue with the company but they have not responded. Basically I asked for an invoice for the TWO books I ordered (at a cost of over £60). I wanted to check costs as on the website the nice gift box is advertised as being free but when I purchased my books I was charged £5 per gift box. Also postage advertised at just over £3 but I'm sure I was charged more than this (per book)! I look forward to perhaps getting a response/explanation now.

    Thank you for your review.

    We can see that an email was sent on Friday which we do apologise for the delay in responding, our responses usually take longer from the weekend due to high volumes. As requested, copies of your email confirmations have been forwarded in separate emails, if you have any queries please get back to us?

    Our web sessions are usually recorded therefore we have viewed your session and can confirm that on both orders you were advised of the additional cost of £5.00 for the gift box and standard postage costs which is clearly advertised on the website. What you are referring to with regards to a free gift box and reduced postage is our trade website however you have ordered via our retail site, these are two completely different websites.

    Sorry for any confusion caused, if you need any further assistance please contact us.

    Kind regards
    In the Book.
