Jason Thompson began making hand-bound books in 1991 after being inspired by one that his wife gave him as a birthday present. The original books were made with simple hand tools: a knife, bone folder, glue brush, needle and thread.

As his company grew, Thompson hired more people and moved the business to six increasingly larger studios. His wife Ilira eventually joined the team as general manager, and now, Thompson employs a team of skilled artisans who create quality albums and books from hand.

I gave to this my husband for Valentine's day. The pages are

1) photo page
2) "My favorite way to spend a day with you is…"
3) "I've always admired the way you…"
4) "When you're away, this is what I miss most about you..."
5) "This coupon good for..."
6) "One thing I'm really looking forward to..."
7) "Cross my heart -- I will keep this promise to you..."
8) "Top 5 Songs that make me think of you..."
9) "When they write your biography, it will begin like this…"
10) "Fantasy trip..." (fill in the blanks)
11) A business card sized pocket to put something in
12) "My favorite story about you…"
13) "I don't tell you this enough, but…"

It's a very cute book and very sturdily put together. It will last. It's fairly easy to fill out (I would suggest writing what you want to write on a separate piece of paper until you get it worked out, then copy it over.) It came in a plastic sleeve to keep it clean if you choose. Different cover choices would be nice although this one is nicely unisex. It would be cool if it came with a pen, but not a big deal.

I bought this for my husband for our 1st Wedding Anniversary. I think it is a great product and I think my husband will really like it when I give it to him. If you aren't so good at telling someone how you feel, this is a great tool and I'm sure your significant other will really appreciate it.
I do have to say that it is much smaller than I anticipated and I feel it's a little too expensive for what it is.

    I bought it as a first anniversary gift for my husband. I was very uncomfortable writing a biography, so I chose to cover it up with a picture of us. It really needs an extra blank page for each customer's individual creativity!

        Best anniversary gift out. I struggle to be creative but this guided me through the process and was enjoyable. Takes a couple hours to fill out but well worth the time. Could not be any happier with the gift. Gets you thinking about all the special times while making.

              Wanted something special & personal for husband's Christmas gift. The book looks aesthetically nice, and seems to be of good quality. It only has 12 pages plus a page for photo & to/from page. I could do w/o the "Top 5 Songs" & "Fantasy Trip" pages. A few extra blank pages to use as wanted would have been nice. A bit on pricey side, but I'm assuming it's because its hand-made.

                  This product is wonderful. I'm sending it to my boyfriend for Valentine's Day while he's deployed. The front has a page where you can tape in a 4x6 photo and the other pages contain thoughtful prompts to help you start writing about the other person. Definitely worth the price considering how meaningful it will be to the recipient.

                        I had as much fun filling the book out as he did reading it! It took me down memory lane in our relationship. I hope to read it and reread it to our kids and grandkids when we're old.
