In England, the year 1966 will always be synonymous with one event: the FIFA World Cup. Both the only tournament staged in England, and the country’s only triumph to date, the 1966 World Cup is still as popular and fondly remembered as ever. Now, you can reacquaint yourself with Charlton, Moore, Hurst and a particular Russian linesman, and relive every World Cup that occurred in the half-century afterwards, in this special gift celebrating the 50th anniversary of England’s greatest victory. From the Hand of God to Gazza’s tears, this World Cup book takes you on a journey through eleven tournaments, setting off in England in 1966 and heading for Germany in 2006, stopping at Spain, Mexico and the United States along the way, all in the form of both newspaper clippings from the time and stunning pitchside pictorials.

The 1966 World Cup newspaper book is presented in a hard-bound black leather cover, and comes with a free premium gift box. The book features segments of colour photos as well as black and white, truly bringing this vibrant and exciting time in history to life. Personalise your book with a name and message to make this the perfect present for any football fan.

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

Absolutely brilliant book.

lorris Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

I have had books similar to this in the past where you personalise the story but I was surprised and extremely pleased when I received this book. I am sure the person I bought it for will be pleased if somewhat surprised finding his name and his friends name in the book. The quality of the book was excellence with the pictures in bright colours. It looks inviting to read . I would certainly recommend this product. thank you so much.

Tony Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

I bought this for my six year old football mad son as a present from Santa given to him by santa at his kindergarden and he absolutely loves it. It made his day, he can't put it down, I have to read it to him every day and he is so excited - I'm really glad I bought this book.

snowwhite01 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

Bought this book for my husband's 60th birthday and am delighted with it. He will love it! He himself was a world cup referee twice! Mexico 86 and Italy 90 so this book is a lovely item for him to keep, read and treasure.

Bernadette Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

My mum is the worlds biggest foot -ball and Ruby fan. She was so delighted with this gift, her excitement to see her name in a book about football was wonderful to see. To many of the spoof magazines are for men so I was delighted that this one gave me to option to include a female . she said she will treasure it for ever and be able to show it off to her gran kids, who are all football mad as well. Its 24 pages of a well scripted story in which she is the star. this is a wonderful gift and well worth its price.

meerkat62 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

What can you buy a football mad boy for his 18th birthday, a quality gift that he will keep & look at, rather than a gift which would be put away & never see the light of day again - answer - A World Cup history told through newspaper reports of the time! I am now a cool aunty

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
