Bought this as a Mother’s Day present…

Bought this as a Mother’s Day present for my Mother-in-law who is very interested in history. She hasn’t put the book down since we gave it to her. Beautifully put together with a big wow factor and personalized touch.

Wife was very happy and surprised

I bought this for my wife’s 60th birthday. The newspaper was in excellent condition, though obviously authentic. My wife and family thoroughly enjoyed seeing the nostalgic glimpse of history on her date of birth. The shipment was prompt and on time. The presentation box looks very nice, and heightened the anticipation of what was going to be inside.

This is a wonderful gift

This is a wonderful gift. After I got my first one that I ordered for my grandson, I bought one for my brother and my nephew.

Excellent Choice

I was amazed how quickly the book was produced and arrived; as I felt I had ordered to close to the event date. I was also nervous as to how the recipient would like the gift. The book and gift box are so professionally done! I choose the dark green cover, and was very pleased. The recipient is a professional of high standards and he LOVED his gift. He too, thought that the book was very well done.
