You'll love this because...

A clever algorithm determines the most sound, unique facts about the individual using any date

  • Personalised with a name, message and birth date
  • Clever algorithms use any date to determine unique facts about the individual
  • Find out the box office hits, no.1 album and more from your chosen birth date
  • A4 hardback or softback bound by hand and embossed with any name
  • FREE luxury gift box with any hardback purchase to keep your book protected as time passes

Each page of this memorable, personalised “the year you were born” book reveals something new, from the box office hits of their birth year to the most popular toys of their decade, all partnered with visually stimulating illustrations. With the individual’s name embossed on the cover and a special message on the opening page from yours truly, the personalised “Book About You” is designed for the humblest of individuals, to remind them that out of seven billion people in the world, they’ll find out why they’re one in a billion.

How to Personalise The Year You Were Born Book

Choose from two cover options: either the blue or orange version, both available in A4 softback or hardback. Then personalise the book with the recipient’s name of up to 25 characters over 1 line. The name will be embossed on the cover and featured throughout the book. Importantly: select the birth date – this will determine the book’s content and be embossed on the cover.

Include a special message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines, with 40 characters per line. This will appear on the opening title page. The hardback comes with a free protective gift box, while with the softback this is an additional charge.
