Great gift for history buff that likes history geared toward them.
I feel that this is the most brilliant gift I could've evergiven my father who loves to read and is a complete history buff as well as was a government employee for his entire career... he has spent many hours pouring over each page comparing and reading it out loud to my mother. we got it for his 80th/birthday Christmas present and I'm so glad we did that. He recollects so many of the stories and also loved just the transition of the way the paper changed as simple as things like the price per paper and font and logo over the years I have recommended this book to everybody I know -and they all love the idea too. It was also super nice to be able to dedicate and write a little inscription in the front of the book

This was the perfect gift for my bookworm/history nerd wife. The text was clear and legible. The current affairs of each of her birthdays are an interesting glimpse into everyday life of bygone years. Some of the things that were of front-page importance long ago know seem trivial, giving important perspective on today's news.
Perfect gift for my husband - I'm excited to give him a gift that I KNOW he will love

I bought this for my brother for Christmas. I can't wait to give it to him!
Beautiful book! I gave it to my husband early because I was excited about it and I knew he would be too.
Can't think of anything I don't like about this. Hope my grandfather likes it just as much!
Someone gave this to my father for his 80th and it was a smash!! Being tired of the same ol' bottle of wine and restaurant GC, I recommended we give this book to my boss as a combined Birthday/Xmas gift. We included a magnifying glass since the print is rather small. It was a thoughtful gift and a huge success. Would definitely purchase again.
This is quite an impressive gift. We gave this as a 70 th birthday present and everyone loved paging through it. The print is small for even young eyes so we did also get a magnifying glass to go along with it. The fact that it is personalized with their name and a message makes this a thoughtful and unique gift.
Recipients loved reading about what happened on their birthdays throughout history. The book is beautifully personalized and bound. You will need a magnifying glass to spend much time reading any of the pages, simply because the pages are broadsheets reduced to book-size. Next time I will include a magnifying glass as part of the gift.
