Birthday Edition - Newspaper Book - Gift Details

The Birthday Edition Newspaper Book is the perfect gift for anyone who’s ever wondered what was making the headlines on each and every one of their birthdays.

Here’s how it works. The personalised Birthday Edition Newspaper Books feature a front page newspaper reprint from the recipient’s Date of Birth and then every birthday thereafter. So if, for example, their birth date was the 1st September 1953, this will be the first front page to appear. After that, it’ll be 1st September 1954, then ’55, then ’56 and so on, all the way through to present day.

Opposite each front-page reprint is a blank page that the recipient can fill with photos and messages that relate to that year. As you’d expect, it’s also worth bearing in mind that the book’s thickness will depend greatly on the age of the recipient.

The newspaper book is offered in two finishes: the standard green leatherette cover and the luxury black leather cover. The latter having gold embossing included as standard, Whichever style you go for, you’ll be able to include a personal Message and the option of gold embossing the front cover.

Your Gift Personalised

For an extra special touch, the Name To Appear will be gold-embossed on the front cover of your gift.

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

General Information

These fantastic personalised books measure an impressive 38 x 31cm, approximately tabloid size and beautifully bound in a choice of hardback covers. 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.
