The Illustrated London News Year Book - Gift Details

In 1842, the Illustrated London Newspaper was founded, portraying the social history of London. Famous artists and engravers skillfully created the artwork for each paper and in turn, the tabloid became the world’s first fully illustrated newspaper. The tabloid was a journalistic revolution fit for the Industrial era in which the paper earned its reputation.

This Illustrated London News Book is a special collection of pictorial newspaper covers from the publication, hand bound in a unique edition. The front of the book is embossed with the recipient’s Name and the Date you select for the book, whilst a Message is featured on the opening title page.

The book covers included in the edition are determined by any Date chosen between 1930 to 1988. The newspaper was a weekly publication from 1930 up until 1971, where the paper then became a monthly edition. So any Date picked between 1930 to 1971 will receive 52 front pages from their selected year, plus 10 iconic front pages, whilst any Date selected from 1972 onwards will receive 12 front pages, plus 50 iconic front pages. This Illustrated London News Archive Book provides recipients with a unique window into the past.

Your Personalized Illustrated London News Year Book

Personalize the book with the recipient’s Name of up to 22 characters over 1 line, which will be embossed in foil on the cover, along with the selected Date. For a beautiful finish to this gift, include a Message on the opening title page of up to 150 characters over 5 lines.
