Great gift

Loved the presentation of the book, perfect for the occasion however, the headlines on the day (no fault of yours) were quite shocking so I wonder if a preview of the paper that would be printed should be made available before orders are confirmed? The recipients really enjoyed looking back at the news of the day of their wedding and loved recalling the adverts, overall a great present

Although l ordered just before a bank holiday, the gift was for my husband birthday and when l telephoned the kind lady said she would do everything to get the gift to me which l did get the book maybe few days late but was worth the wait, the binding is lovely the inside with the old fashioned paper editions are great to read - little on the small side for reading as it was an A4 addition but it was quite simply a stunning present which my husband loved
