The main focus of 60s news in America was on the successful progression, and devastating casualties, of the Civil Rights Movement. John F. Kennedy, one of the most popular Presidents of all-time and an advocate of civil rights, was sworn into office in 1961, before being assassinated only two years later by Lee Harvey Oswald while riding in his presidential limousine. Later in the decade, Martin Luther King, the figurehead of the Civil Rights Movement who had orated his “I Have a Dream” speech to over a million people three months before Kennedy’s death, would be assassinated himself at a motel in Memphis.
Another huge event in the 1960s was the Apollo 11 landing, which saw Neil Armstrong become the first human being to set foot on the surface of the moon. Personalize 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 1960s 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.

Pleased with quick delivery
Pleased with quick delivery, lovely story for my Great Grandson who is 2half years old. Disapointed with the actual quality overall for the price you charged, regarding the quality of the thiness of the paper. Was expecting thicker pages.

90th Birthday Gift
We bought this for a relative's 90th Birthday present who lives in the south of England and as we live in the north it was delivered directly to him. It arrived on the day of his Birthday and he was absolutely delighted with it. He wouldn't have been happier if we'd given him £1,000. Thank you so much for a unique gift

I wanted to get my daughter something
I wanted to get my daughter something special for her birthday and In The Book did not disappoint! I bought her a personalised princess book which was great because it allowed me to put a picture of her inside and a special birthday message. When it arrived it came in a keepsake Disney box. My daughter absolutely loves it!
I would highly recommend In The Book because they provide a fast delivery service and quality products.
