Illustrated London News Newspaper Archive

The Illustrated London News was the world’s first illustrated weekly news magazine, dating as far back as 1842. The magazine continued to be published weekly until 1971, then less frequently, until publication ended in 2003.

Our Illustrated London News archive holds a large number of original newspapers, which are particularly special because the magazine changed the nature of news print publications with its illustrations. The vivid imagery used in its issues made news stories more exciting to its readers, and makes them more unique as historical newspaper gifts.

FROM £24.99

Historic Newspaper’s collection of Illustrated London News back issues is even more unique since the magazine is no longer being published. Our archive holds the UK’s largest archive of these magazines and there are a wide range of dates to choose from. The magazines can be personalised to add a recipient’s name, the occasion, and a personal greeting on the certificate that guarantees that your copy is a genuine original publication.

An issue of the magazine makes a very memorable gift for any occasion, especially for someone interested in illustrated news from the past.

Incredable product

Incredable product. The delivery was very quick, the product was better than I expected, it looks a LOT more expensive than it is, I bought 1 at first, when it arrived, I was won over by its quality so I bought another, PERFECT Christmas present.
