Red Letter Days

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 Washington Post, 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.

Product was a gift for my father's 80th birthday. We're planning the same for my mother's. My wife learned of these books years ago and had been planning to gift them ever since. Great idea.

My grandfather loved it!

My grandpa was diagnosed with dementia a little over a year ago. This gift meant so much to him. My grandmother also thought it was great and very unique. I also sent him a magnifying glass that slides over the pages and has a built in LED light. I read that some of the print was rather small. They seemed to appreciate that as well.

Uncommon Goods Customer Service Saves The Day!

I love this book! It's so thoughtful and unique. My husband and I bought two of these, one for my friend's 50th birthday and one of his dad's 60th birthday. Both of the books came in with engraving irregularities on the front cover. Nothing was spelled wrong, but the embosser wasn't pressing one of the letter's fully so half of it was cut off. It was annoying to receive a less than perfect custom item. I called Uncommon Goods and their customer service saved the day! They immediately replaced both books, free of charge. Amazing!
