The Illustrated London News was an historic magazine of news and the arts, published in London. It was founded as a weekly in 1842 by Herbert Ingram. It was London’s first illustrated weekly Newspaper, and the first edition had 32 woodcuts in the 16 pages of its first issue. It was also the first periodical to make extensive use of woodcuts and engravings and the first to use photographs. The Illustrated London News was an instant success, and when, shortly after it appeared, it won the approval of the archbishop of Canterbury, it also won the support of the churchgoing public.


Artist & Engravers

Print Type
Wood Wood engraving is a printmaking technique, in which an artist works an image or matrix of images into a block of wood. Functionally a variety of woodcut, it uses relief printing, where the artist applies ink to the face of the block and prints using relatively low pressure. Wood-engraved blocks could be used on conventional printing presses, which were going through rapid mechanical improvements during the first quarter of the 19th century. The blocks were made the same height as, and composited alongside, movable type in page layouts—so printers could produce thousands of copies of illustrated pages with almost no deterioration.
