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. 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 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.
Features 90 stories and two cover pages. Total number of pages: 102.
When entering your personalization, please note that accents, emojis and other symbols can’t be used as our system doesn’t support these. Make sure to double check your spelling!

Constant calls about delivery
Constant calls about delivery. The people on the phone actually have no control over when an item gets sent out so it was just constantly false information. I actually didn’t need the item after it arrived late, but I couldn’t stand speaking to them on the phone again to go over the refund process which they probably would have not allowed as it was personalised.
Really bad experience

Ordered and paid for a book for my mother, promised delivery was july 16-21. Today is the 26th and your website has no info on my order, nothing, and obviously no delivery. Yet, my bank account clearly shows a $99.98 payment to inthebook on july 7, 2021. Update: Inthebook contacted me the next morning, updated me on the shipping and my mother’s book arrived the next day. She’s 84 and it’s been awhile since I’ve seen her tears of joy. All’s well that ends well. Thank you, and I’ve updated my review to reflect 5 stars.
