The Birthday Book

I bought the Birthday book for my Mum's 90th birthday. It arrived, beautifully bound in good time for the big day. My Mum was thrilled with it, it's a trip down memory lane, and a lovely keepsake. Thank you for your excellent service and attention to detail.

70th birthday gift

The newspaper was in good condition, arrived promptly and looked great in the presentation box with certificate. My dad loved it as a 70th birthday present and couldn't wait to start reading the news from the day he was born.
