The Illustrated London News Year Book is available in A4 size
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 hardback and measures 12.5 x 15”
I bought this book for my father-in-law's 80th birthday and I'm so pleased with it. I've not yet given him it but I know he will absolutely love it. The prints are so clear considering they're duplicated and the cover is so lovely. I can't wait for his birthday so we can give it to him.

Love this book and the way that facts ate woven into a story with a personal touch. The presentation box makes the book look like an extra special gift. For a child Interested in the stars and planets, this book is great. A bit pricey compared to non personalised books, but worth it to have it contsin a picture and my grandson's name within the text/book. The look on his face was priceless and the added interest due to the personalisation made it a sensational gift.

Not quite what I expected!
Content of book has lots of good interesting content although print is quite small but I was very disappointed that the book is about Glasgow Rangers and is bound in maroon (Heart of Mid Lothian colour) Also the book was personalised. This consisted of a printed sticker which wasn’t even stuck down properly. I expected a bit more for the price I paid.

Thank you for your review.
We are sorry to hear this.
As you have ordered the A4 size book, this is presented in a brown leatherette cover as standard. We do provide all information on the covers within the production page. We do apologise if this was missed.
As the newspaper that we use is the Daily Mirror, this is an A3 tabloid size. For this paper to fit within an A4 book, the content does have to be shrunk down which does unfortunately make the text smaller than originally printed.
We do apologise for any inconvenienced caused.
If you need to contact the customer service team, please do on 0330 058 0403 or [email protected]

Should be an Interesting Read
The item was exactly what I thought it would be, the downside was that that newspaper has a strong unpleasant odour, I appreciate that it’s 60 years old but it still smells!
