Birthday Edition - Newspaper Book - Gift Details

The Birthday Edition Newspaper Book is the perfect gift for anyone who’s ever wondered what made the headlines from the day they were born. What famous figure do I share my birthday with? Were shell suits discovered before or after my birth? Simply open up this birth date newspaper book to find out…

Here’s how it works. The personalised Birthday Edition Newspaper Book features a front-page newspaper reprint from the recipient’s Date of Birth, and then every birthday thereafter. So, if the recipient’s birth date was the 1st September 1953, this will be the first front page to appear. After that, it’ll be September 1st 1954, then ‘55 and onwards, through to the present day.

The reprints themselves are printed on durable, quality paper, with a blank page across from each reprint. The recipient can fill the space with mementos relating to that year. It’s worth bearing in mind that the book’s thickness will depend greatly on the age of the recipient. This just means you can add in your own sentiments, photos and memos.

The result is a unique, one-of-a-kind keepsake to be cherished and ultimately, reflect their worth.

About the Birthday Book Itself

The newspaper book is offered in two finishes. Whichever style you go for, you’ll have the option to gold emboss the front cover:

  • The Standard Green Leatherette Cover features original reprinted content on every year of the recipient’s birthday, presented with a green hand bound cover.
  • With the Luxury Black Leather Cover, the recipient’s Name is gold embossed as standard as a personal finishing touch. The original, printed content on every year of the recipient's birthday is bound in a black leather cover, perfect for a truly special occasion.

Your Gift Personalised

To personalise this unique Birthday Edition newspaper book, simply add the recipient’s Name and your personal Message. This will be printed on a certificate on the title page of the book.

Please be advised, if you choose to emboss the recipient's Name on the cover, the Date of Birth will be printed as standard.

General Information

These fantastic personalised books measure an impressive 38 x 31cm, approximately tabloid size. Content is taken from the Daily Mirror as it provides the best insight into periods past, though broad journalistic content, photographs (which many other titles 40, 50 years ago lacked), advertisements etc. Established in 1903 and Britain’s best selling post war paper up to the 1970s.

Please note: The book will only include this year's birthday page if it is ordered 30 days after the selected date. There will be occasions (very rarely) when a front page for your exact date isn't available. For example: No newspapers are printed on Christmas Day, Good Friday and during strikes, in which case a front page from the day after will be used.

How our Newspaper Books are made

How the books are made

Each page is reproduced from fully licensed scans taken from the pages of original newspapers going back over 100 years.

They are individually printed to order onto a high quality thicker paper to provide greater durability.

The reproductions are then individually cut and bound in a premium quality leatherette hard back book with the option to personalise with the recipient’s name gold embossed on the front cover.

Our impressively large books are burgundy in colour and 38 x 30cm, approximately Tabloid sized.

It takes four craftsmen/women over an hour to create each book by hand.
