The biggest events of the 1970s are showcased via Washington Post newspaper articles printed at the time.
A collection of original Washington Post reprints from the 1970s
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
In 1972, five men broke into the Democratic National Committee headquarters, prompting a political controversy that would become one of the most famous subjects of print news of the Seventies, or indeed any other decade: the Watergate Scandal. Two years later, but still in the wake of the event, Richard Nixon would become the only US President to ever resign from office. The 1970s also saw the end of the Vietnam War, a twenty-year conflict which had seen millions of soldiers and civilians killed.
Two entertainment icons also lost their lives in the 70s: Elvis Presley at the age of 44, and Charlie Chaplin four months later, aged 88. 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 1970s 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.
Features 90 stories and two cover pages. Total number of pages: 102.
The book I ordered is of high quality printing and as I ordered the hardback cover will hopefully be a lasting keepsake for our grandson. I would recommend these books without hesitation.

Fabulous bible for First Holy Communion. Grandaughter delighted to see her name on the cover with the date too. Personal dedication inside is a nice touch too. Ordering was easy and delivered on time. Can’t fault the service. In fact this is the second time we have bought a bible; last time was for older grandson. Will buy a third when youngest grandaughter comes of age. Highly recommend this company.
