Today I want to share with you a product from Historic Newspapers. Historic Newspapers got in touch with me inviting me to review one of their personalised books and after browsing their range, I decided to get a personalised football book for Little Man. He loves his football and his team is Aston Villa, so we have received an Aston Villa personalised book, let me share a little more about them with you and also offer you the chance to win a football book of your own – any club!

Personalised Football Books
Historic Newspapers offer a good range of personalised football books, and as our son adores his football, this seemed like a great choice for us to receive and review.
Each book is specially bound by hand and contains rare newspaper coverage of your chosen team. The recipient’s name is also gold embossed on the cover, meaning these football history books make unique gifts that can be looked back upon time and time again.
There are currently 61 clubs that you can choose from, from Aberdeen through to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Aston Villa Personalised Football Book
We opted for the Aston Villa book, as that’s our club. Our son is a big fan, so we thought this would make a great gift for him.
On opening the package from Historic Newspapers, it instantly felt special. It is carefully packed in sturdy cardboard and on opening it, the book itself is housed in a smart presentation box.
This is an A3 hardback book and as you can see, looks smart and well-presented.
The book comes with the option to add a name and there is room for a message. At the bottom of that front cover there it has our son’s name printed on it and just inside the book is a presented to message, with our personal dedication to him.
The pages are thick and good quality, black and white for the majority of the book until the newspapers all became colour, so they move to colour pages towards the end of the book.
Aston Villa is an old football club, and this books begins all the way back in 1905, which is absolutely fascinating. The history geek in me loves seeing all of the other articles and ads dotted around the stories. It’s also interesting to see how the language and news reporting has changed over the years.
It includes Aston Villa history over the years, the big games and the highlights and I was pleased to spot that they have my son’s favourite game in there, as it was quite a success for Villa!
These books are fabulous and unique gifts. These football club books are brilliant for any football fan, and if football is not their thing, just take a look at the great range of other books available or opt for the birthday book. They are a fascinating glimpse into history and are sure to make a truly memorable gift.
