Red Letter Days

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 Washington Post, 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.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

        The book was a gift for our Dad's 90th birthday celebration. He was thrilled and in awe of all the historical events he has witnessed over his remarkable lifespan. The book sits on his living room coffee table to share with all who visit!

              I bought this for my mother in laws birthday and thought it was something unique for someone who already has everything! It's a large book, quality cover and very cool to take some time to read through the front pages of the Washington Post. I like that you can personalize with their name and birthdate.

                    Although I had read the product reviews prior to ordering, I was thoroughly impressed when I received the birthday newspaper book. It's always hard to buy for my dad, but I think this will be something he will treasure.

                        This is a great present, and the book turned out to be wonderfully made. I read comments on how the text is too small, but I found it to be more legible than what I thought it would be. On some of the older years, the text is a little faded, but the purchase is still very worth it. I highly recommend it.

                            I purchased this for my sons, father's birthday. He grew up in the Washington area so this is a perfect gift for him to reminisce with our son about his past and hand it down to him. The presentation was exactly as I had expected, lovely!

My husband was very impressed with the book and indicated that he thought that was a GREAT idea for a present. I think he was more than dropping a hint for his NEXT birthday!
