You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the extensive history of the England international cricket team. 

  • Personalise with any Name and Message 
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box for long-term protection
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1905 to the present day

Now updated with England’s utterly captivating victory, with extensive coverage of the 2019 event as it unfolded! Relive the history of cricket on the international stage through newspaper clippings in this personalised English Cricket book. With coverage beginning in 1905, this timeless piece of cricket memorabilia takes you back over a century, revisiting all the key moments from Lord’s, Edgbaston, The Oval and beyond, right up until the present day.

Despite the first record of an England national cricket team stretching back as far as 1739, success on the world stage has proven elusive for the most part. Often the bridesmaids, England have been runners-up at the Cricket World Cup three times, in 1979, 1987 and 1992, and in the ICC Champions Trophy in 2004 and 2013. Still, there have been some great moments along the way. In 1938, England hit 903 runs in a Test match against Australia, with 364 of them coming from Len Hutton, both records which stand to this day. The team’s highest One-Day tally came a lot more recently, as they went 444/3 from 50 overs against Pakistan in 2016. And in 2005, England registered perhaps their most famous Ashes victory, as Messrs Flintoff, Pietersen, Vaughan, Trescothick and Strauss, along with numerous others, combined to put an end to almost twenty years of Australian dominance.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Lovely Gift for Birthday Present

Mr and Mrs . Carnell Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 30 Mar 2021

Very well presented and ideal for a cricket lover.

Clare Hughes Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 17 Jan 2021

Very interesting! I hope hubby likes it as he is a great cricket fan and has all the usual autobiographies etc but nothing like this!

Amanda Brown Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 31 Dec 2020

Amazing book.Lovely gift for a cricket fan.

KDot Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 24 Dec 2020

Lovely idea, easy to navigate the website. The price tiers for various extra features (like embossing or dedication) are a good touch, and delivery was fast and secure. Really love the product!

Peter Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 9 Oct 2020

Wonderful present

Kim Marshall Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 21 Jun 2020

Very disappointed with the detail and text size. It’s not a cheap item and is a lovely idea of a gift but let down by the presentation of it. Text is so small that a magnifying glass is needed if you don’t have excellent vision. Would have been helpful to have something to advise this if purchasing the A4. The book was just short of £60 and was bought as a gift and for that price I just expected more. If you do purchase it choose the A3 and hopefully it will have better detail taken. Gift box had air bubbles around the edge where it hasn’t stuck properly and the corners on the book itself were a bit messy.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are so sorry to hear this.

    As these books are made up of the Daily Mirror newspaper, this newspaper is a tabloid size, which is A3. To make the A4 size, we have to shrink down the newspaper to an A4 size which does make the text smaller than how it would have been originally printed.

    We are not able to locate any communication to our Customer Service Team in regards to the quality of the product you have received. We have therefore passed your order to our Customer Service Team who will request some photos showing the issues you have raised and they will be able to look into this further for you.

    Once again, please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    If you need to contact the customer service team, please do on 0330 058 0403 or [email protected]

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

Great product

Laura Janes Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 16 Dec 2019

Good quality and really nicely put together. A really lovely gift.

S Stewart Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 5 Dec 2019

I bought this for a hard to buy for son-in-law. It arrived in good time, it was well packaged and I'm pleased with the quality. Although it's not a read from cover to cover book, I think he will be interested to flick through. I found the adverts in the newspapers very interesting, and quite nostalgic.

Delighted with book

Book ideal as a gift for a cricket fanatic. Very pleased with it.

Glunn Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 13 May 2021

Beautiful as a gift!

Bought this book as a gift for my 8yr old nephew who is a huge fan of Marvel. This book is a completely unique gift! And after receiving the book in the post you can personalise it with a message and a photo all for free which then makes this gift extra special. I love it and so does my nephew!

Carol Pooley Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 13 May 2021

I have not received the book I ordered…

I have not received the book I ordered from you. It was easy to contact you by email & you replied the next day. Also it was easy to reach you by phone. I tried to make one small change of the birthdate & I was advised it was too late as the book had already been sent to the production department. It seems odd to ask for a review of a book I have, as yet, not even received. Since you asked a 2nd time I can only give you a “C,” so far. The grade could go up or down depending on the quality of the book.

Disney - The Ultimate Princess Collection

I had previously ordered the disney princess book from a different website and was disappointed with the results. The text I had requested had only been half printed and the photo I sent hadn't been cropped or zoomed into the frame correctly so didn't provide a good finish. For the price and as a keepsake for my Daughter's 1st Birthday I was not happy. However, I reordered with in the book and was able to adjust the photo myself to ensure it fitted the frame and the personalisation was spot on! I wish I'd have gone directly to them initially!

IJay Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 12 May 2021
