The first issue of Country Life appeared 125 years ago on 8 January 1897 (see illustration). This late Victorian magazine was in many ways a product of the Arts and Crafts movement and took advantage of the latest printing technology to integrate high-quality photographs within pages of text (and was initially entitled 'Illustrated' to underline this novelty).

The magazine continues to thrive and is today the only glossy weekly in the publishing industry. Its cumulative coverage, both in text and images, constitutes the single greatest survey of British architecture and gardens ever published.
