Reminisce the most incredible headlines from your life with the Washington Post Book.
Personalize with any Name and presentation Message
Specially produced to commemorate birthdays and anniversaries
Bound in elegant brown leatherette
Features articles and headlines from any date
Impressive size measures 12 x 15″
See your life in the headlines with this Washington Post book, designed around your life or the special person you’re buying for. Specially made from exact reproductions of The Washington Post articles, the news and major events featured in the book are determined by the date you select. This can be a birth date or anniversary date to get the best content. Once you’ve selected your year, the book will be made into a complete newspaper showing headlines from throughout the year, and front pages from each following year up to the present day.
The book is personalized for the individual, featuring their name and a message on a certificate on the title page. As for the book itself, the edition is bound by hand in a leatherette cover and includes the name you choose embossed on the edition. The book is best suited for birthdays as the thickness of the book will depend on the age of the recipient. It’s a memorable treasure for anyone celebrating a milestone occasion.
How to Personalize the Washington Post Newspaper Book of Your Life
Personalize the inside certificate page with a name of up to 22 characters over 1 line and a personal message up to 150 characters over 5 lines. You can emboss the recipient’s name on the cover.
Please note: If for any reason a newspaper does not exist for a particular date (it’s a day on which newspapers weren’t published or it occurred during a strike) the following day’s front page will be used. Total page count varies depending upon year selected; the final front page will be from the previous year.
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!
🌲 Our books are made from responsibly sourced paper from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper manufacturers. 🌎

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…
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.
