When Herbert Ingram, a Lincolnshire-born printer and newsagent, noticed his customers’ appetite for the latest news from London, and their preference for any paper or pamphlets featuring pictures, he decided to create London’s first fully-illustrated newspaper. Herbert Ingram’s magic formula ensured The Illustrated London News remained Britain’s pre-eminent illustrated periodical for almost 150 years. Today the preserved archive of the ILN remains an incomparable, inexhaustible and inspiring visual record of that remarkable period of history. This unique book collects together every front page from your special year, followed by highlights from the ILN’s extraordinary historic archive. The front page is silver embossed with the recipient’s name and the opening page is personalized with a message, making this a unique gift perfect for any occasion.
