There are many many pages of gorgeous woodcut engravings (and in later issues photos), highly prized today for their detailed woodcut illustrations of events in World history. The ILN generally contained engravings in different sizes, from double page (20" x 15") to single page (15" x 10") to half page (10" x 7") and at times even quarter page. The Illustrated London News in the 20th Century was printed on high quality white glossy paper stock, quite durable and easy to handle without damage.
