The Times of your Life

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 LA Times, 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.

Awesome Gift

My husband loved this book. He was born and raised in Los Angeles so this was a perfect gift for him. As he got further into the book, he could remember some of the events. It was fun to see what happened every year on his birthday. I highly recommend. Also - good quality. Hard copy with gold foil imprint.

Really nice gift for an older person

This was a nice gift for my father-in-law because he likes reading about "old times" and he lived in the LA area for decades, so he remembers some of these headlines.
