You'll love this because...

This substantial book is packed with headlines from the date of the recipient’s birth and every birthday thereafter.

  • A unique birthday book personalised with any Name and Message
  • Gold emboss any name on the front cover
  • Bound in high quality, handmade covers
  • Complete this gift with a luxury gift box to keep your book protected as time passes
  • Features full front page newspaper reprint from a chosen date

A personalised birthday newspaper book is the perfect gift for those with a passion for history or journalism. This book provides a fascinating insight into how things were reported in the British press on your chosen date. Professionally bound in one-off leather and leatherette covers, this book features a front-page reprint from the day of the recipient’s birth and then every birthday thereafter. So, if the recipient was born on 10th October 1963, this will be the first page to appear. Following that, it will be 10th October 1964, then ‘65, and onwards to the present day.

The reprints themselves are printed on durable, quality paper. The recipient can use a blank page between each reprint to collate their own memories from that year, making this a truly meaningful present. The newspaper book is available in two finishes, whichever style you choose, you can gold emboss the front cover.

How to Personalise Your Birthday Newspaper Book

Personalise this newspaper birthday book with any date and any name on its cover. Add a special presentation message in the book’s opening pages for added charm.

Please note: if you choose to emboss the front cover with the recipient’s name, the date of birth will be printed as standard.

Further Information

This fantastic personalised book measures an impressive 38 x 31 cm—roughly tabloid size. Content is taken directly from one of the UK’s best-selling tabloid newspapers, the Daily Mirror. The paper provides unrivalled insight into days gone by, through broad journalistic content, photographs and also advertisements. This content is the best way to gain true historical insight into the past.

Please note: From 26th March to 20th April 1955, the Daily Mirror was on strike, which means newspapers won’t be available for these dates. If your date of birth falls within this period of striking, a page will be inserted into your Birthday Newspaper book explaining that there were no newspapers for that birthday year.

Please note: The birthday page for this year will only be featured in the book if you order your newspaper book 30 days after the selected date. In some cases (very rare), a front page for your exact date might not be available, for example on Christmas Day, Good Friday and during strikes, when no newspapers are printed. If this should happen with your date, a newspaper front page from the following day will be included instead.

When entering your personalisation, please note that accents, emojis and other symbols can’t be used as our system doesn’t support these. Make sure to double check your spelling!

🌲 Our books are made from responsibly sourced paper from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper manufacturers. 🌎

I did not realise it was just the UK newspaper articles..I would've liked the same but from australian/western australia newspaper articles.. so I was disappointed since it cost a bit and it was a gift for my mothers 91st Bday.

Valerie BakerTrustpilot product review 1 star rating8 Aug 2021

As I was expecting the paper for a particular date of birth and got a book with the headlines for that date from that year I was very disappointed. Plus the quality of the picture and reproduction was rather poor. Definitely not value for money The only good bit was the book cover

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    All our orders are processed and produced as the customer has requested online, which is also confirmed on the email confirmation. Looking into your order, this is the product you had ordered, not an original newspaper from your selected date.

    In regards to the scans, these have been archived from original microfilms which are in black and white, some of which are quite dated and can vary in quality. We do make every effort to ensure they are cleaned up prior to dispatch but we are very dependent on the scans available for each date which can be quite grainy/pixelated. It is only in recent years that full colour digital archives have been made available so the print technology from certain years may not be as good as a print from today.

    As a gesture, we will apply a 10% to your order, which we hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kind Regards
    The In The Book Team

Customer service very polite and helpful, willing to solve the issue with a coupon for discounts which would not apply. Solution was to offer me a refund for the correspondent discount, which I agreed. Thank you, Rachel

Good quality products

The products and the service are excellent but the package used for posting is not good. I ordered a book and it came with two corners damaged, it was replaced but the second book arrive with one corner damaged. I have managed to make the corner better. I suggest they put extra protection on the corners. I would order again as the products are good
