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 £29.99

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.

Such a unique and wonderful gift

Such a unique and wonderful gift. It was a present for a friend who turned 40 and she and her family and friends have had a great deal of enjoyment out of the paper. Great service, fast shipping and wonderful presentation.

An excellent choice of gift for a loved one!

I bought a newspaper as a gift for my husband’s birthday. He was very pleased with both the newspaper and the presentation box it was supplied in. The quality of the newspaper was excellent, and the presentation box displays it very well and gives great protection. The delivery of the order was very quick, considering we’re currently in lockdown. Overall I would recommend this to anyone looking for a gift for a loved one, or maybe for themselves!

This was an 80 th gift for my FIL

This was an 80 th gift for my FIL, he was overwhelmed and absolutely loves it. It was a 1941 scottish daily mail in quite good condition. Maybe a little expensive for what it was.

Absolutely brilliant present

Absolutely brilliant present. I gave it to my fiancé for his 50th birthday and we enjoyed reading it together. The highlight was that exactly 50 years ago Great Britain was trying to join EU and 50 years down the line exiting He loved it. I would recommend it

Having bought your newspapers before as…

Having bought your newspapers before as birthday gifts I decided to order a personalised newspaper golf headline book for my husband’s 50th. The Item received was unfortunately poor quality, but I was very impressed by your customer service to put this right quickly!
