Please note: New York Times Custom Anniversary Book includes only pages from the year of the recipients' anniversary onward. A more recent wedding will result in a shorter book.

These pages are not standard newspaper dimensions, therefore, the type is shrunk slightly to fit a more convenient, book-sized trim. Certain years/pages are reprinted from microfilm and font size 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.

We bought this for my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary and it was a huge hit with them and us. Reading through the pages is like a walk through history -- interesting, informative, and extremely fun! It is something we know they will actually spend hours reading, as well as treasure as a keepsake and conversation piece. The personalization on the cover and the title page is stately and well-designed and makes the gift extra-special for the recipient. We also enjoyed the unexpected extra historic front pages included at the end of the book (e.g., end of WWI, sinking of Titanic, first walk on the Moon, etc.!). Note that the book is smaller than an actual newspaper page, which means the print is also smaller -- so we included a 2" x 4" magnifier along with the gift :).

The book itself looks nice if a little plain. The subject matter is fascinating and everything is very clear and easy to read. My main complaint is that at the end of the book there are a large number of additional NY Times front pages included. WHY? This is supposed to be about the front pages on the dates of my parents anniversaries but for some unknown reason you decided to include random pages at the end? It significantly detracts from the impact of the gift and was very disappointing to say the least. Please consider removing these in the future as I am sure I am not the only one to feel this way.

    Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Anniversary Book:

    My husband and I were stumped as to what to buy our two sets parents as thank you gifts for our wedding. Normally we would buy experiences (restaurant gift cards, etc.) but I wanted to give them a keepsake. This was perfect. We wrote a letter on the inside instead of giving them a card, too. Note that this product is really big - I'm a little worried my parents won't have a place to put it in their small flat but I'm sure they will figure something out.

      Really great gift for the whole family. My parents were celebrating their 44th wedding anniversary, but the kids all got together and we were able to hear about noteworthy things in the newspaper and in their lives in those years. Highly recommend.

            I could not find a single thing for my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. They have everything and can buy what they want. They are also starting to get rid of things. This is the MOST perfect gift for the person/people in your life "have it all." There are also blank pages in the front, which my husband and I signed as well as the rest of our family wishing them a happy Golden Anniversary. Wonderful gift and keepsake.

                      This was a great book to commemorate a 50th Anniversary. There was a front page from every year of their marriage as well as significant headlines within those same years. We took another reviewers advice and had guests at the party write messages in the blank pages (4) of the book. Printing is small but normal for that newspaper.

                      Delivery was quoted as one week to ten days but the book was received in three days!

                          I was throwing my parents a 50th Anniversary party and bought this as their gift. On my invitation I asked partygoers in lieu of gifts to recall a story of them. At the party, I set the book up and brought markers and asked everyone who attended to sign the inside of their Anniversary book as though it was a yearbook. By the end of the night, they had made their own personal book. Mom and Dad loved it!
