Year Edition - Newspaper Book - Gift Details
A beautifully bound hardback book that holds a complete recreation of a national newspaper, from any date of your choice, together with other major newspaper reports from that year.
These books make a wonderful commemorative gift for a key date or milestone event. An ideal gift to celebrate a 40th, 50th or 60th Birthday, and perfect for a Silver, Ruby or Golden wedding Anniversary or even for a retirement.
Rekindle fond memories from a special occasion in the past or relive the news that happened on your day. An ideal glimpse of how the world was, as reported in the press at the time, from the headlines to the advertisements in what seems today a very different time.
Your Gift Personalised
This Newspaper gift can be personalised; you can personalise the certificate on the title page, with the recipient's Name and a Message. You can also, optionally, ‘Gold Emboss’ the front cover with the Name of the recipient.
Impressively large books, this edition is 38 x 31cm, approximately tabloid sized. 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: 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.
We operate Monday to Friday only, so weekends and holidays do not count in the production or postage timescales quoted.
Orders placed before 11am begin production that day, while orders received after this time begin the following day.
Orders placed on a Friday afternoon or over a weekend will begin production on Monday.
The majority of our gifts are made to order, so please allow time for the product to be made (produced)
as well as the time for delivery. The table above outlines our production time for both standard and urgent orders,
please add these to the postage lead time for an accurate idea of when you’ll receive your item(s).
You can track your order via our
Track My Ordertracking facility.
How our Newspaper 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.
