You'll love this because...

This substantial 40th birthday book is packed with headlines from the date of the recipient’s birth and every birthday thereafter.

  • A unique book with headlines from their Date of Birth, and every birthday thereafter
  • Personalise with the recipient’s Name and add a Message on the title page
  • Option to gold emboss their name on the front cover
  • Luxury gift box available to complete this perfect gift

Celebrate that special 40th birthday with our personalised 40th birthday newspaper book. The 40th Birthday Edition Newspaper Book is the perfect gift for anyone who’s ever wondered what was making the headlines on their special day. What’s more, their milestone birthday appears on the front cover.

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 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, green and black. Whichever style you choose, you can gold emboss the front cover.

How to Personalise Your 40th Birthday Newspaper Book

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. For an extra special touch, gold emboss the recipient’s Name on the front cover.

Further 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.

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.

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. 🌎

A great gift for my Everton mad fiancé

A great gift for my Everton mad fiancé. He loved looking down memory lane via the newspaper cuttings and remembering being there. He also loved the personalisation it made it an even more special gift. Well worth the money and not overly expensive.

Really quick delivery and a beautiful book as for 80th present not knowing what to buy this is so usual and brilliant gold writing so pleased with it !!

Charlie Cartmel Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 3 Mar 2021

Late delivery

The book was bought as a Birthday Present with the scheduled delivery period covering the date although one day delay would have been acceptable. It actually took 8 days to arrive, 4 days later than expected. The tracking only said it was despatched by Royal Mail 24 and gave no further information. It was not specifically the responsibility of In The Book, however the use of Royal Mail is a negative.

So happy with my purchase! I bought two books for my twin nieces birthday and I’m sure they will absolutely love it! Can’t wait to gift it to them soon. Love the fact that you can add a special touch with being able to personalise the books! And very fast delivery.
