About The New York Times

It’s a Date

Bind together a personal, nostalgic history with a custom book of New York Times covers.

Choose a wedding day, birthday, anniversary, or any other special date and they’ll create a bound collection of the news for you.

Commemorate the moment you said, “I do” with the entire newspaper from that day. Or celebrate your anniversary with a compilation of covers—from your first to your fifth or fiftieth. Or gift someone a time traveling birthday ticket so they can journey through a lifetime’s worth of covers.

The New York Times archives date all the way back to 1851—and seeing how society, the paper’s layout, and even the advertisements evolve over decades is fascinating.

Depending on the version you choose and how far back your date is, your book can also include famous front pages throughout history. See the end of the Civil War or the fall of the Berlin Wall.

These Made in the USA memory books are the kind of gift you’ll look and re-look at. Each time you do, there’s something new to learn or reminisce about.
