Year Edition – Newspaper Book

  • Enjoy reading a complete reproduction newspaper from your chosen Date
  • Personalise the inside page with a Name and Message
  • Option to gold emboss the cover with the recipient's Name
  • Book also includes at least 12 major front pages from your selected Year
  • Perfect for celebrating a key date or milestone event - e.g. landmark anniversaries or special birthdays

This magnificent Year Edition Newspaper Book makes a superb commemorative gift for that special event or milestone, whether it’s a 40th, 50th or 60th birthday, if not a silver, ruby or golden anniversary.

The book measures 38 x 31cm, approximately tabloid newspaper size, and comes in a choice of beautiful green leatherette or luxurious black leather covers. Inside, there’s a complete recreation of a national newspaper, from the Date of your choice together with other important newspaper reports from that year.

As for the content, that comes from The Mirror as it provides the best insight into the past with its broad journalistic content, photographs (which many other newspapers lacked 40-50 years ago), adverts etc. It was established in 1903 and was Britain's best selling post war newspaper right up to the 1970s.

Personalised Year Edition Newspaper Book

The recipient’s Name and even a personal Message can be added to the certificate title page of your Year Edition Newspaper Book to make it even more special, at no extra charge. For the perfect finishing touch the recipient’s Name can even be gold embossed onto the front cover of your book.

Additional Information

The books content is taken from past issues of the Daily Mirror, and are therefore in a tabloid sized format, measuring a remarkable 38 x 31cm. The beautiful made to order book is then hand bound in a choice of high quality hardback covers. The Daily Mirror is Britain’s best-selling post war newspaper up to the 1970’s since it was established in 1903. Through broad journalistic content, including photographs (something many competing titles didn’t utilise), advertisements etc. the Daily Mirror provides superior insight into the past.

Please note: There will be occasions (very rarely) when a front page for your exact date isn't available. For example: No newspapers are printed on Christmas Day, Good Friday and during strikes, in which case a front page from the day after will be used.

Please note: The Mirror was on strike from 26th March 1955 through to 20th April 1955. As such, if your chosen date falls during this strike period, we will be unable to supply a Year Edition – Newspaper Book.
