This book is a custom gift I made for a retirement party. Letters were written and typed up of congratulations and well wishes. The letters were printed on each page with space leftover for the attaching of photos or other paraphernalia. Many people were involved in the making of this now cherished momento. Please let me know if I can make something special for your loved one's achievement, graduation, retirement, wedding, birth, etc.
The tie closure is linen tape glued into the inside of the book and wraps the book twice and which allows a bow to be tied.

The mail system is a precarious and uncontrollable thing. I cannot be held responsible for unfortunate damage that may occur during shipping but rest assured, I wrap these books up nice and snug to try my best to protect them during their travels.
