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
  • 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.

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.

Kal Knell Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 25 Nov 2019

Sharon Hilton Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 5 Sep 2019

Nice gift for someone difficult to buy for, overall good quality although due to some very old newspaper print some pages better than others

vita Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 26 Aug 2019

Quite pricey, but worth getting for special occasion. Personalised messages makes it even more special. My husband loves cricket and he said it was the best present ever!

Mrs Susan cooke Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 23 Aug 2019

Disappointed that the text on front cover was off centre. Pleased with overall book though.

Disney princess book

The princess book that I ordered was beautiful and delivered on time

Heckiew Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 23 Sep 2020

Not quite what I expected!

Content of book has lots of good interesting content although print is quite small but I was very disappointed that the book is about Glasgow Rangers and is bound in maroon (Heart of Mid Lothian colour) Also the book was personalised. This consisted of a printed sticker which wasn’t even stuck down properly. I expected a bit more for the price I paid.

Jodie Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 23 Sep 2020

A beautiful book that made a great present ..

A beautiful book that made a great present for my newborn baby Nephew. A great keepsake. My nephews name was throughout the book and we were also able to put a personal message in the front of the book. Very pleased with my purchase.

Colin Shytot Yarde Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 22 Sep 2020

Should be an Interesting Read

The item was exactly what I thought it would be, the downside was that that newspaper has a strong unpleasant odour, I appreciate that it’s 60 years old but it still smells!

Disney Princess Book

I ordered the book for my great-niece and had it delivered directly to her home in another state. I actually didn't see the book in person. My niece said the book was made well. I put my great-niece's photo on the back of the book. My niece told me that the photo had a high-resolution quality. I would suggest a way to track the book so one can determine when the book is delivered. I was able to contact the publisher to find out when the book was delivered. I was pleased that it was delivered on my great-niece's birthday.

Ann from Birmingham Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 21 Sep 2020

Ordering was fairly easy

Ordering was fairly easy, although I would have liked to have been able to read the stories first to see where the names went, I couldnt see this option. I ordered 4 books for different children. I was a little disappointed with the disney priness book, very small print and only A5, where all the others were A4
