Festival of Britain edition, Illustrated London News


A souvenir issue of the Illustrated London News to mark the opening of the Festival of Britain. Very striking cover picture by Terence Cuneo showing the South Bank site and the various prominent buildings.

80 pages in total, plus covers, the main body of the magazine is 35 pages about the Festival including numerous photogaphs and colour and sepia illustrations. The centre spread and adjoining pages are particularly impressive. The Festival feature also includes the service at St Pauls Cathedral etc.

The magazine does also include other more general news including the progress of the Korean War.

As can be expected many of the adverts feature the Festival.

Size 370 x 260mm with paper covers. The covers are showing signs of wear, with small tears to the spine and back cover and creasing of corners, nevertheless this magazine is still in good condition overall.
