Notes
New York Times Custom Birthday Book has a 20 page minimum, so only dates in 1998 or before can be ordered at this time. The book includes only pages from the year of the recipient's birth onward. A younger recipient will result in a shorter book.

Please note: 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.

Great gift for someone that is difficult to purchase a gift for because you think they have everything they could want. It is a neat nostalgic gift that I think can be enjoyed for many months.

high quality perfect gift

This gift came arrived exceptionally quickly, particularly in consideration to its personalized nature. I was intrigued by the concept, it is a memorable gift for a milestone birthday, especially for those who typically read the newspaper. This gift is MUCH better than the typical 'year you were born' gift/books/cards because it really spans the lifetime and includes events you remember rather than the year you were born and don't recall the events of. It's a great gift for older friends and family because it includes so much history and interesting views - as they say hindsight is 20-20. I scanned a few pages before gifting it and was excited to see the content. I think the price point could be 25% less, or keep the same price but include a 60day trial for NYT archives to read some more articles from the dates in the book.

My dad loves to flip though the pages and reminisce. Also his dad worked for the printing dept of the new York times and he likes to think it is little piece of his dad as well.

Such a neat surprise.

This item is great! Lots of reviews state that this gift is great for older recipients and while that is true, I did find this to be a great gift for a 41 year old. He loved it and found it to be quite unique and thoughtful. I appreciate that they include notable pages throughout history in the back to fill out the book when there aren't enough years for a full book.

Highly Recommended Gift

My Dad loved this gift. He was so impressed to have his name and birthday on the cover. The books are very well made. I would suggest purchasing a quality magnifying glass to assist in reading. We gave him both and he was very pleased.

Amazing birthday gift!!

My dad is a HUGE history buff and I thought something like this would be a great gift for his birthday. I was right!! He couldn't stop talking about it, and showing everyone around him! Also, the packaging is amazing so there is no worry that the book will get bent or beat up in the mail.

Beautiful Product

I was very happy with the end product. The gift had its desired impact when my brother opened it. This is something the can have out on his coffee table and look through either casually or more in depth. The has already learned that on his birthday there was a printing strike, so the learned a bit about that situation from 40 years ago.
