You'll love this because...

The biggest events of the 1940s are showcased via Washington Post newspaper articles printed at the time.

  • A collection of original Washington Post reprints from the 1940s
  • Personalized with any name, a message and optional embossing
  • Gold embossed and handbound in a racing green leatherette cover
  • Ability to emboss your cover for free
  • 12.5” x 15” of tabloid coverage of major events

The front pages of the 1940s were of course dominated by the Second World War. Perhaps the most significant event of the war from an American perspective was Pearl Harbour, a Japanese military attack on the US naval base on the morning of December 7, 1941. Later on in the decade, after the 1945 conclusion of the war, remaining tensions between the Western Bloc and the Soviet Union would lead to the beginning of the Cold War.

The 1940s also saw Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s unprecedented third term as President, as well as his untimely death four years later, while still in office. But perhaps the most shocking death of the 40s was that of Mahatma Gandhi, assassinated aged 78 in January 1948 by a right-wing Hindu nationalist. Personalise your Washington Post Decade book with a name and special message, which will be printed in a certificate on the title page. The name will also be embossed in gold on the cover, making this the perfect gift for any budding historian.

How to Personalize the 1940s Decade Book

This edition comes in a green leatherette cover with your recipient’s name embossed in gold as standard. Also add a special message to feature on the book’s title page.

Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

Binding is weird but book is BEAUTIFUL! Buy it! :)

I agree with others that the binding makes you feel like it is easy to fall apart. I also agree with others about the pages being a bit frail. However, it's BEAUTIFUL! The binding is what it is, but the pages are from the newspaper so it gives it a better feel than an actual book. The book is much larger than I expected and although it is a bit cumbersome, it makes the content all the more exciting. It needs to be large so you can read the print. The book includes Kobe's early days, his retirement, the crash, and his legacy from the words of his close friends. It's beautiful. I'm actually disappointed that I have to give it away because I bought it as a Christmas gift for a friend. It will take them a long time to read through all of it and it is a pleasant walk down memory lane. I like this book option because I was going to get them a plaque but then they would be forced to look a Kobe everyday which may be rough. This is a nice gift for them to have when they have their friends over and want to reminisce about Kobe. Rest in Power, Mamba.

The most appalling customer service…

The most appalling customer service I've experienced with a company. I've written two reviews already with no resolution. They claim they have given me a discount but that offer is open to anyone making a second purchase. They charged me twice for the same product as I made an error when ordering but contacted them within minutes of realising my mistake. I followed up with a phone call the next day but was told I needed to pay over again. I thought that In the Book could at least meet me half way but no, I was very politely turned down. Same stock answer every time!

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    Our Production Team are currently working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep up with demand on orders. Once an order has been placed, and the customer has confirmed the personalisation, production may begin straightaway. The Customer Service Team are available Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm and unfortunately this means that we may not be able to amend personalisation. This would have been advised within your automated email you would have received, when sending an email to us.

    Looking into your order, this seems to be the case, where your order had already been printed and we were not able to make the changes that you had wanted. As this is a customer error, we are not able to take on the cost to remake the book free of charge. We will however always offer a discount as a goodwill gesture, should the customer wish to place a new order with the correct information.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced 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
