Illustrated London News to return to print?

The Illustrated London News, the world’s first pictorial newspaper when it was launched in 1842, could be relaunched as a magazine, after a buyout of the company that owns the rights to the title by leading Communications figures in the City, the Telegraph reports.

The new owners of the company that owns the rights to the magazine have said they will consider brining the magazine back into print.

They have already announced plans to digitise the magazine’s historic picture library and agreed a deal with picture agency Mary Evans Picture Library to manage the archive.
