Definately recomend this product

The presentation of the book looks great in the leather finish and gold lettering. I only gave the company 3 days to print and then deliver the book in time for my partners birthday, but to my surprise it arrived on the day. My only criticism would be that the personal message area could be printed bigger, as it does appear quite small.

Excellent gift for a milestone birthday

Absolutely thrilled with this gift for my 95-year-old father. It looks very well produced, arrived in time (with a very tight turnaround time) and has given him (a Telegraph subscriber) great pleasure during lockdown. The ideal gift for someone with a milestone birthday who's interested in world events. Will be recommending this to many!
