LA Times Custom Birthday Book

Celebrate someone's life with a book of LA Times front pages from each of their birthdays.

$100.00

The Times of your Life

It's time to celebrate a great moment in history--the day you were born! This custom-made, commemorative book is a treasury of the historic events that have crossed the path of you or an honored gift recipient. To start with, the timeless, hardback binding comes with the recipient's name embossed in gold on its surface, as well as a custom-printed dedication on the title page. Inside, the book contains reproductions of the front page of the LA Times, one for each birthday all the way back to the day you entered the world.

Leafing through the pages gives a time-lapse view of a lifetime of history, from world events and global leaders, to changing technology and fashions. Opposite from each headline page is a page with room for the recipient to write his or her own personal experience of that year, along with photos and other mementos. It's a beautiful tribute that transforms the ephemeral matter of yesterday's news into something that will be treasured for years--or generations--to come. Made in the United Kingdom.

                This makes quite a handsome presentation. My husband has particularly enjoyed the early entries, reading about events in his early years that he had been too young to experience. The recipient should feel special knowing this could not be picked up at the last minute or regifted. :)

                    I have yet to see it (present for my mother's husband)...but both of them RAVED about it. How it was so interesting and well put together. My mom wanted to know where I ordered it from as she wanted to buy it for my brother's next birthday! And that is coming from a very picky person!!

                      We got this for my grandpa's 75th birthday and it was a huge hit! He loved it! The book is beautiful, the engraving on the front is lovely! I strongly recommend this as a gift!
