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 and keep it protected as time passes

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. 🌎

The advert is very misleading. Pages are basic black and white photocopies and some are very poor quality prints at that. My complaint was met with an excuse about ‘archived newspapers’ and therefore quality would not always be great. Yet, some copies of the older pages were clear and others were not. Simply too dark or faded. Definitely not worth the money.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    The information that the Customer Representative has provided is correct. The scans have been archived from original microfilms which are in black and white and it was only from 2006 that the Daiy Mirror printed in full colour. 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 your selected year may not be as good as a print from today.

    As a gesture, we have applied a 10% discount to your order, which has been refunded to you, which we hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.

    Kindest Regards
    The In The Book Team

    This book starts from 1981 through to 2001.
    The unacceptable pages are 1983, 1991, 1994, 1995, 2005, 2006, 2020
    So, that pretty much blows your explanation apart.
    Again, very disappointing!!

  • In the Book Team 24 Jan 2022

    Thank you for your updated.

    From the photos that you have attached, these are still prints from 30 years ago, where the Daily Mirror still printed in black and white and technology 30 years ago was not how it is nowadays.

    Your review has been passed to our Customer Service Team to obtain photos from the recent years and we can look into this further for you.

    Kindest Regards
    The In The Book Team

Wonderful, excellent quality and well received, although more than I was intending to pay, it was well worth the money and the extra for the personalisation on the front is definitely worth it. A very difficult person to buy for was really pleased so thank you!

Derek Bristow16 Sep 2021

Poor quality paper and photocopies of a poor news media.

  • In the Book Team 16 Sep 2021

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear that you are not happy with the product.

    We can see that you have been in contact with a member of the Customer Service Team who has explained about the scan quality.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.
