New York Times Custom Birthday Book has a 20 page minimum, so only dates in 1995 or before can be ordered at this time. The book includes only pages from the year of the recipient's birth onward. A younger recipient will result in a shorter book.

Please note: Certain years/pages are reprinted from microfilm and font sized 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.

    Great book! Love that it's personalized. The gold ink is smeared on the cover though, looks like something rolled across it while wet. I will contact customer service.

              Perfect gift for the friend who has everything and doesn't need anything. What better way to celebrate a milestone birthday (in this case, 50th) than the chance to rediscover what was happening in the world on your birthday each year?
