Year Edition - Newspaper Book - Gift Details
Newspapers capture history in the moment. This beautifully bound hardback book 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, creating a unique memento for a one-of-a-kind occasion. It’s the ideal gift to celebrate a 40th, 50th or 60th birthday, and perfect for a Silver, Ruby or Golden Wedding Anniversary too.
Rekindle fond memories from a special occasion or relive the headlines of any day in history, all with this newspaper book. It gives the individual a glimpse into how the world once was. Reported by the press at the time, from the headlines to the advertisements, the gift is reproduced in the exact condition as when the newspapers first went to print, for an uncanny glimpse into the past.
Personalise this gift with any Name of up to 22 characters over 1 line and a Message of up to 150 characters over 5 lines. This will appear on the certificate of the title page.
For extra charm, why not emboss the recipient’s Name on the cover of the book? Our luxury leather cover includes embossing for FREE, or a small fee of only £5 for the leatherette editions.
The impressively large books are tabloid size, measuring 38 x 31cm. Content is taken from the Daily Mirror, Britain’ bestselling post-war newspaper up to the 1970s. As well as broad journalistic content, photographs (which many other titles 40, 50 years ago lacked), advertisements etc are featured.
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.
Your text will be made exactly as you have entered it, so please double check spelling, punctuation and capitalisation. Accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.
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.
