Ever wonder what world events have helped shape your lifetime? Or your parents' lifetimes? Explore a personalized history collection from the daily record of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Our Custom Birthday Book celebrates the headlines of your loved ones lives. Hardbound with every front page of the newspaper from the day of birth and every birthday thereafter, it's a uniquely personal gift and lasting treasure.
As a friend or loved one flips through this personalized hardcover book, it will take them back in time to the most important headlines, articles and photos from the selected day of the year.
If your special date is July 4, 1925, for example, the Custom Birthday Book will include the front page from that date, and the front pages from July 4 every year following.
Exclusively available from The Philadelphia Inquirer Store, this 12" x 15" book is available with a leatherette cover with foil-stamped embossing in your choice of burgundy or navy cover. Your recipient's name will be printed in all caps, as it appears in the product photos.
Each book contains approximately 80 reprinted pages.
Available for the years starting 1919 to 2001.
Books require a 20-page minimum (any year requested after 2002 will hinder overall book quality)
Books for younger recipients have fewer birthday front pages, but we automatically insert a collection of famous front pages at the end of the book to make each book around 80 pages.
Most pages are reproduced from black and white microfilm, an archiving process that picked up imperfections on printed pages and may have diminished the quality of photos.
Produced as a 12" x 15" coffee table book, this favorite starts with the front page from the day you were born, followed by the front page from every birthday in your life - creating a personalized history collection. Available with a leatherette cover in your choice of burgundy or navy.
Because this personalized item is custom-made for you, all sales are final and this product cannot be returned, refunded or exchanged. Produced in Vermont.
Front page customizations are limited to the recipient's first and last name (i.e. Ben Franklin). Special notes, happy birthday wishes, and other types of messaging will not be processed.
As long as the page has already been published, your selected date will be accepted. We will not hold orders for future dates.
