Best gift ever!!

My 100 year old mother-in-law thought it was the best gift ever. She now spends lots of time reading what happened on her birthday over all those years. She (and I) couldn't be happier.

A Thrilling Gift

Excellent presentation and well worth the investment. I’ve purchased two as gifts and my recipients were in awe of what they had. A nice keepsake to be handed down.
