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.

A lovely Milestone birthday present

The Newspapers arrived very promptly in a much bigger package than expected and when opened was found to be most beautifully presented in a gold-lettered box. The birthday newspaper within was in very good condition, and the older one, though in very small print, was a very acceptable extra bonus. I will be the first to borrow them from the recipient, to read at my leisure!

Lovely keepsake

We bought a newspaper for the date of our first daughter’s birth. We chose to add a personal message and it came in a lovely presentation box and was well packaged. We are really pleased. The delivery time was very good.

This was for a 90 year old mans birthday.

This was for a 90 year old mans birthday, thats a long time and for him to see what had happened on each of his birth years gave him some memories he never remembered but then he remembered the rest it bought back many memories so he was a very happy birthday boy. The book was well made and presentable with his name on the front when I gave it to him I felt just like Eamonn Andrews
