Le Monde illustré

Le Monde illustré (title translation: The Illustrated World) was a leading illustrated newsmagazine in France which was published from 1857-1940 and again from 1945 to 1956. It was in many ways similar to its contemporary English-language newsmagazine, the Illustrated London News and should not be confused with the French newspaper Le Monde.

History and profile

Le Monde illustré was established in 1857.[1] Many of the highly realistic prints published in the medium of wood-engraving were actually made from photographs, at a time when photographic reproduction in print was not technically feasible until the late nineteenth century. Among its artists was Hector Giacomelli.
