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.

For the most part
For the most part, the book was beautiful. The only thing is that the engraving on the front was coming off.
Nice book. Doesn't feel expensive though.

Very quick reply reference to payments…
Very quick reply reference to payments due to be taken from my acct x2 when only one book ordered. Was told only one ordered but but two did come out of bank. Has put me in areas for only a couple of days and you did reimburse the money. So not bothered because charges will be minimal.
Also the tracking app didn't work. To be honest the above is a little hiccup.
The book came today and I've just looked at it and it's absolutely amazing. I am so so pleased with it because my stepson is a mental man Utd fan and the quality of the cover is perfect. A big thank you for this amazing book and will definitely recommend you to friends and family Thank Mrs Baz Sayers

So disappointed as the book was not as described and I can't give it as a gift. In addition, the customer service experience has been really poor. Such a shame.

really good quality and finish very happy
The book I received was folded and the cover and pages were creased, the package it came in was not folded or damaged at all, so it had to be done before shipping. This was going to be a gift and I am disappointed. I contacted the company days ago and still have not heard from them.
