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
  • 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. 🌎

Alison Thomas Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 22 Apr 2021

My purchase was completely spoiled by the crooked presentation label stuck on the first page. It cheapened the book and took away the specialness.

  • In the Book Team 23 Apr 2021

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    Your feedback has been passed onto our Management Team to review with our Production, as your order should not have been dispatched with the personalisation label in this way, which we do apologise for. As these are easy peel labels and can be removed without ripping the page, a replacement has been sent out to you today.

    As a gesture, we have refunded your postage charge, back onto your original payment method.. We hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry. Would not recommend to anyone. Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better. Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet. If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

CHRISTINA MCCARTHY Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 20 Apr 2021

The book itself is absolutely beautiful…

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night. I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order. Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories. If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer. In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    Once a customer has confirmed their order, it is not always possible to add/amend personalisation, as our Production Team are currently working 24 hours a day to keep up with the demand on orders and a photo does have to be uploaded at the time of ordering. With your order, unfortunately your book has already been printed and therefore amendments could not be made, which we do apologise for.

    In regards to the Child’s name throughout the book, unfortunately this is not possible with every book that we sell, however we do make it clear within the product information. With the book that you have ordered, we do confirm that your child’s name will appear on the cover and on each page. We do apologise if this information was missed at the time of ordering.

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

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

Michael Kaye Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 Apr 2021

A great cover and fronts piece.

A great cover and fronts piece. However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

Gemma Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 Apr 2021

Absolutely brilliant company
