Custom Commemorative Books

SCMP custom commemorative books collect the news of an important date of your choosing.  Inside are the headlines and news from the selected date and the front pages of the date from every subsequent year.  This leatherette book cover comes with rose gold or silver foil-stamped debossed area that highlights your custom messaging. 

The 21.5cm x 30.2cm hardcover book is perfect for celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding anniversary, retirement, or any important life moments.  The book displays the recipient’s name and special date on the cover.

As you flip through this special one of a kind custom book, it will take you back to a specific date and time in history through the front page news and photos from the South China Morning Post. 

Pages are smaller than the dimensions of a newspaper, so the type is reduced slightly to fit this book’s convenient size. Book dates starting from 1903 to 1998 are printed in black and white. Most pre-1998 pages are reproduced from microfilm, an archiving process that picked up imperfections on printed pages and diminished the quality of photos. Books starting from 1998 include colour front pages.  

All Sales Are Final.  This product cannot be returned, refunded, or exchanged.
