The biggest events of the 1980s are showcased via Washington Post newspaper articles printed at the time.
A collection of original Washington Post reprints from the 1980s

The 1980s saw a change in the political landscape, with Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev sworn in as leaders of America and the Soviet Union respectively. The two men would work together to ease tensions between the nations, culminating in the 1987 nuclear missile treaty and eventually the conclusion of the Cold War. The 1980s also saw perhaps the biggest wedding ceremony of all-time, as Prince Charles wed Diana Spencer at St Paul’s Cathedral on 29th July 1981.
Probably the most tragic piece of 80s news came in January 1986, when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded after 73 seconds, with the event broadcast on national television. 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 1980s 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.
Not only the quality of the product but the superb customer service. The accessibility, the care and promptness I experienced with Yvette is laudable. Thank you Yvette, I am happy you replied to my inquiry. I would use and recommend the company In The Book without hesitation.

If you've seen or used a Haynes car…
If you've seen or used a Haynes car manual, then you'll appreciate the humour im this one!! A great gift for any car person/people, who've just got married or not!!
Well worth it as a present, as it is quite funny......or at least the parts that I quickly read before wrapping it up as a present. It was delivered quickly, within a few days too.

A great gift idea
Simple and easy to set up. Great quality product and arrived on time. A perfect little gift to give, recommend.
Smaller than a Hayes manual
Lovely book. Only personalised on the front cover & on one page inside.
A smaller size than the original Haynes manual. It’s ok for the money. Nice enough gift
