My husband is such a difficult person to buy presents for. He never really asks for anything (except a new car, but I can’t afford that) so I kind of have to guess what he would like and he usually ends up with lots of little bits. He doesn’t really read (so not like me) so I don’t buy him books, but The Book Of Everyone is a different kind of book. I think he will really like this one, and maybe you know, actually read it…
We created The Book of Everyone as a gigantic heart-thumping, grin-inducing, lip-wobbling celebration of the individual. Your mum, your son, your lifelong friend, your local baker and smile-maker. Because everyone needs to feel loved and unique. And knowing that you share 50% of your DNA with a banana or a billion atoms with Shakespeare is really very important.
Founded by creative directors Jonny Biggins, Jason Bramley, and Steve Hanson, the idea was sparked when Steve purchased all the newspapers on the birth of his son Saul as a keepsake for his 21st birthday (please don’t tell him, he still doesn’t know). They set to work on creating a personalisation platform that could instantly create a book tailored to anyone, stuffed full with curious facts and curveball miscellany, all set against a backdrop of world events.
It’s a daily labour of love that involves all our favourite artists, designers and photographers. Today, we are a multicultural team of writers, designers, technologists, marketers, and lifelong dreamers with hearts set on spreading a big fat dollop of wonderful across the world. With over 100,000 books in 175 countries so far, we’ve made a start. Just around 7 billion to go.
The creation process of The Book Of
Everyone Paul was so simple. To begin the process you just need to give a few simple details; the recipient’s name, gender, date of birth, and the age you would like in the book (current age or age on their next birthday). You can also add who the book is from. Then press go, and your book will be automatically generated based on the amazing amounts of information the creators have gathered over the years.
Some of the pages are able to be personalised (way too many to go through here!) and some come as standard. But there are so many pages with fun facts, it was like a learning journey for me too! Just some of the pages are facts such as the biggest movie of the year of birth; what song was number one on the day of birth; the recipient’s name in sign language; fashion of the time; and even a lovely little biological factual poem!
The quality of the book is brilliant; I went for hardback but you are able to purchase other formats. Other books also available are The Book Of Mum, The Book Of Dad, a romantic edition, and even a Christmas edition! The pages are really thick with great quality, glossy print and it’s such a joy to read through; I imagine even more so when you know it’s personalised to you. I would absolutely adore one of these for myself; it would definitely be on display on my bookshelf – it’s fab!
RRP – £29.99 for hardback (other format prices can be found here)
