Please note: New York Times Custom Anniversary Book includes only pages from the year of the recipients' anniversary onward. A more recent wedding will result in a shorter book.

These pages are not standard newspaper dimensions, therefore, the type is shrunk slightly to fit a more convenient, book-sized trim. Certain years/pages are reprinted from microfilm and font size may be reduced. Missing pages may be the result of a newspaper strike or a lack of relevant information on the front page for that date.

    Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Anniversary Book:

    I was throwing my parents a 50th Anniversary party and bought this as their gift. On my invitation I asked partygoers in lieu of gifts to recall a story of them. At the party, I set the book up and brought markers and asked everyone who attended to sign the inside of their Anniversary book as though it was a yearbook. By the end of the night, they had made their own personal book. Mom and Dad loved it!

      Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Anniversary Book:

      Absolutely gorgeous book detailing history and bringing back memories. A great piece to spark conversations and life observations, and definitely an easy way to spend time among multiple generations. When we'd land on something particularly meaningful (example: the day after Robert Kennedy's assassination), it felt like we'd found an Easter egg. Love that huge historical moments were captured in the back pages, as well.

        We thought this would be an excellent Anniversary Gift. The book is better than I thought it would be, binding & cover are Awesome. I wasn't expecting double sided pages, but its very convenient. The print is a bit small, may be difficult for older adults without glasses.
        Would DEFINITELY purchase again!

            Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Anniversary Book:

            We bought this for my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary and it was a huge hit with them and us. Reading through the pages is like a walk through history -- interesting, informative, and extremely fun! It is something we know they will actually spend hours reading, as well as treasure as a keepsake and conversation piece. The personalization on the cover and the title page is stately and well-designed and makes the gift extra-special for the recipient. We also enjoyed the unexpected extra historic front pages included at the end of the book (e.g., end of WWI, sinking of Titanic, first walk on the Moon, etc.!). Note that the book is smaller than an actual newspaper page, which means the print is also smaller -- so we included a 2" x 4" magnifier along with the gift :).

            Service and delivery comments:

            We were so grateful for the quick delivery time, which allowed us to present the gift as planned. We ordered it preferred shipping and it arrived in 2 business days (it may not always be this quick, but it was in this case). The book was carefully packaged and arrived in perfect condition. This was our first purchase from Uncommon Goods but we will undoubtedly be back. Thank you, Uncommon Goods!

              I purchased this as a wedding gift to the parents of the groom(me). The book is extremely well done from the personalization of the cover, to the inside pages. It covered every year from 1959 until 2015. The binding is top notch!! Color pages started in the mid 90's which was a pleasant surprise as well. they did an excellent job, and will be ordering one for Christmas for a few other people in mind. Thank you so much!

                    I think this would be a great gift for someone who's interested in history. I'm excited to give this to my parents as a gift to them for being a part of my wedding. I wanted to show how long their love has lasted and I hope our's last just as long. The only disappointment I had was I thought it would have a page for everyday since they got married. But it has a one page per year on their anniversary date. I guess I misunderstood. Anyhow, it's a lovely book and I'm excited to give it to my parents who have been married for 48 years! Oh, a side note, it did include extra pages to show big historic events that did not happen on the date I ordered. So that's nice too!

                    High Quality, But Somewhat Inconsistent

                    We ordered two of these books for two different couples. They are about what we expected -- high-quality and a fun, unusual gift. They were delivered very quickly as well. However, the two books have been handled in slightly different ways. One book is for a wedding date in 1981, and the first newspaper page in the book is also 1981. The other book is for a wedding date in 1978, and the first newspaper page in the book is for 1979 (1978 has been skipped). I'm not sure which way it's supposed to be since it's an "anniversary" book, but it makes more sense to me that their actually wedding year be included in the book. I just wish that the 1978 page had been included as well.
