The Illustrated London News Archive Review and Competition Ends 01/10

I adore finding unique gifts for people and recently I came across the Illustrated London News Archive Book. Perfect for those that live in London, adore London or the history of this great city, the book is a collection of newspaper covers of the Illustrated London News, bound by hand and made into a book.

In its time the Illustrated London News was a weekly publication up to 1971 and thereafter a monthly publication.



Originally released in 1842 at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution the Illustrated London News became famous for its portrayal of Victorian life, from concerts, theatre shows and races to politics and world events.

The artists and engravers were well-known at the time for the quality of their illustrations and made the book famous. These include Birket Foster and George Weir amongst others.

You can order a personalised edition of the Illustrated London News with the recipient's name and year, all beautifully embossed in a blue hand bound cover. A message can also be used to personalise the book.




Today on my blog I am given you the chance to win a copy of the Illustrated London News Archive book worth £29.99 from I Just Love It. Entry is easy via the Rafflecopter application below. If you are not sure how to enter Rafflecopter competitions check this out.
