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 purchased the Anniversary Book for my niece, Whitley, who is getting married in December because I wanted her to have something different. She opened it and liked it very much. She can use it to record memories of things that take place each year of their life. I wanted her to have something unique she could remember me by as she grew older. The only thing we did not like about it was all the pages were exactly the same.

The categories for feedback suggest this is a photo album, which is definitely is not. It is a really beautiful journal into which you can put photos, but there is actually no mechanism for doing so built into the design. The materials and construction are excellent. I purchased this item for my upcoming 5th anniversary as a way to begin documenting our celebrations, etc. I like that it goes up to 50 years.

One complaint I have is that the prompts provided on each anniversary page are kind of silly (to me). I don't really care what songs, movies, and books we enjoyed each year, and there is very little space provided for the most meaningful prompt: a message you write to one another. In some ways, I wish the book did not have prompts, and just had the page layouts/frames.

There is a blank page provided for a wedding photo and an anniversary photo every 5 years. We happen to have (so far) taken a snapshot of ourselves on our anniversary each year, so I've used photo corners to insert these into the book on the blank pages facing each anniversary page. The fact that the pages are only printed on one side does give you some flexibility in adding photos or other content in the empty space, but the binding is not designed to accommodate a lot of inserted material so I'm not sure how well it will hold up when I have photos included for each year!

        It was OK - I was disappointed in the page layouts and the fact that each anniversary was not labeled with its tradition, IE. first anniversary is paper.

        I bought this for my sister-in-law's bridal shower. The book is nice quality but I wish it could have combined the fresh modern design and wit of the 12-year anniversary book with the length (up to 50 years) of this book. It seemed a little boring, and the cover was a different color (green) than i thought it would be (black). However, I think it made a very nice gift and I like how it is handmade.

          This is a beautiful way to commerate our life together. It is simple, yet elegant way to remember each year we have together -not just the wedding day itself. I just thought it was a little pricy. Nonetheless it's a great idea.

            My husband and I started to reflect and remember nine years of our amazing marriage, choosing the best photo from each anniversary and stories from the past. We are so excited to move forward each year and document our years together.

            I wish I had known about this at year one!! An amazing gift!

            Comments about Anniversary Book:

            This is a beautifully constructed book that I plan to fill out and give to my husband on our next anniversary. I only wish that I had gotten it before our sixth because my memory is a bit hazy, but half the fun will be having him help me fill in the details. I also bought one for my brother since he was recently married and can start from year one. There's not a huge amount of writing space for each year, but I think the idea of collecting memories throughout the years all in one place is a great one, and this book will be one for us, my children, and someday my grandchildren to enjoy as they get a deeper glimpse into our life together. I agree with others who have written that the cover fabric feels a little stodgy, and I only wish that there were a few options for this so that you could select a color/theme that fit you more closely.

                  I purchased this product for my step-daughter and her husband's first anniversary...it is absoultely perfect for her (them), the handmade construction is sturdy and exactly what she appreciates, the butterflies have a very special meaning in our family and the color scheme of her wedding was predominately green and brown. This is the perfect choice!
