Birthday book

My lovelies, I wanted to share my dad's 60th birthday present (just because I'm so excited about it). I made him a hardcover photo book filled with snapshots from all stages of his life. It was so much fun looking through family shots and choosing favorites, including a few he had never seen! (How hilarious is his expression in his wedding photo, by the way?) When I gave it to him this past weekend, he was so touched and couldn't stop looking through it. It was one of those truly special life moments.

(P.S. I made the book through Pinhole Press, and the book felt beautiful, with silky paper and a linen cloth hardcover. This book is the exact one I choose, but there are a bunch of other lovely options. Would be amazing to make a wedding album, too, don't you think? xo)

how perfect! this would make a darling present for mother or fathers day too! thanks for the idea :)

An Invitation said...

What a sweet idea! I have the hardest time thinking of gifts for my dad. I may have to borrow this idea when his 60th rolls around :)

amynicole said...

Beautiful book! My mom made me one from our wedding, my sister made one for our wedding dinner for guests to sign and they are so fun to look at! My sister also makes them every year recapping what her family did and she makes them for my parents. They are the greatest gifts!

TERI REES WANG said...

That is something so sweet and generous, and something to share with all who show up to celebrate him.

Cheers!

Anna said...

I'll add to the chorus of praises. This is gorgeous!

I'm guessing you used a combination of actual paper snapshots, and some digital images (or were they all printed out?)...
You've made me want to make one!

Thanks,
Anna

Katie*Belle said...

This is so beautiful. I just love it!

gemma said...

AMAZING.

Sunshine said...

wow...that is awesome! Great idea!

stephanie said...

Amazing! I kind of want to make something like that for my nephew because he never knew my dad and it would be a fun way to give him a little family history. Thanks for sharing!

My Beautiful Life said...

What a lovely gift. And yes, his expression on his wedding day is hysterical. Weddings are crazy though, and there is so much going on, and so much excitement, it is all so wonderful, and overwhelmingly beautiful.

Need to go put my little papoose in his crib now.

Hope you and Toby are having a lovely day

How beautiful! I am attending and photographing the wedding of two dear friends next weekend, and while I've looked at many "photo book" sites, this one is the most lovely I've seen! Thank you for sharing!

cozette said...

I LOVE this - and what gorgeous photographs from your Dad's life too. He looks like he was a mischievous kid!

I'm inspired. My Dad's Birthday is in May and I think I'm going to make him a book too.

I love the way you dad held you/lucy when you were a baby. And also your dad's expression with your uncle in the last photo. Such a great gift, Joanna! Xoxo michelle

Abbie said...

I LOVE photo books! I made one for my mum and dad's 25th anniversary, my little sister's 18th and as a present for friends in Italy. They're such a lovely way of storing and looking back on memories!

Best,

Molliee said...

what an amazing present! So creative and thoughtful!!!

Allison Blass said...

What a brilliant idea! Both my parents turn 60 in a couple of years (they were born 12 days a part) and their 30th wedding anniversary is in 2 years, so I could see doing a joint book of them together. Thanks for the idea!

Did you do one for your mom?

Sarah said...

Joanna, that's great! My mom's 60th birthdayis in two weeks,and I have already made a photo book on Shutterfly and planned to order it soon. I'm now seriously considering re-doing it with pinhole press because it's more modern (and less expensive!). Do you how long it took to ship after you submitted it? Thanks so much!

Molly said...

Lovely lovely lovely. What a treasured gift!

Nicole Marie said...

this is so beautiful joanna. i want to make one for my parents but it's hard to find old photos as my mom came from communist prague and had to leave all her belongings and pictures from her childhood behind

Amanda Swann said...

What a beautiful book! We have given those for Christmas presents and things and things like and they are always a hit.

Diana Mieczan said...

This is so beautiful! I love gifts like that as they are so special. Well done, Joanna:)

mkendall said...

My dad has alzheimer's so a few years ago I made him a book like this of his life for christmas so he could maybe remember us a little longer. It's been 3 years and he looks at almost everyday. One time he told my brother that it was worth a million dollars. Sometimes the simplest gifts are the best ones. That one looks absolutely gorgeous.

Lotje said...

Such a beautiful present, I would cry my eyes out if I were to get such a lovely and personal gift...

Ms. Habit said...

love the look of this book. Classic and cool. I always use apple, but I'm thinking I want to try this brand out. Perfect gift for a 60th bday. I did the same for my mom.

i have a question, how did you get your dad's old photos in there? did you scan each one individually?
thanks!

A Sunday Kind Of Love said...

this is JUST what i need! for my paternal grandmother's 80th, my mom and i made a book for her by hand. it was beautiful but it cost soooo much money and it took several weeks of constant work. my maternal grandmother's 80th is this december- and i think we will have to try this! it's gorgeous!
p.s. i love the schoolboy photos- too cute!

Bethany said...

wow. this is so SO beautiful, Jo. I think I may have to do this for my mom. Thanks for sharing!

This is the best gift idea. Very touching.

JESSICA DEFINE said...

best present ever! great looking book--and I think I will make a wedding album.

Ida said...

Very beautiful :)

Marie said...

Awesome idea !! Hubby is turning 40 this year and that would be a brilliant present for him (he would LOVE it)... Did you have to scan/upload all the photos ? I'm secretly hoping I could just send all my pics over and they would do it for me (and then send them back with the book)(so lazy, I know :) xx

DaWolf x said...

That's a wonderful gift, it's a life gift (:
ha, your dad's facial expression is pretty hilarious as you said. :D

Joanna Goddard said...

yes! jessica, a wedding album would be AMAZING! i think we're going to make one, too.

Joanna Goddard said...

esthere and marie, i did scan old photos, and i used some photos that were already digital. then it was really easy to make the book after that. scanning isn't too tough -- you can actually take photos to photo stores and they'll do it for you and give you a disk, if you want! xo

jenny @ albeit... said...

Joanna, what a GREAT idea, especially for parents!! You're sooo sweet! I bet your dad was just smiling from ear to ear! Thanks for sharing with us!!

Cathi said...

I'd love to do this for my parent's 30th anniversary this year, but there aren't a lot of recent photos of the two of them (my mom doesn't like being photographed).

Holly said...

What a special gift for your dad's 60th! So polished yet very personal. I've been delaying putting together my wedding album for several months, and this is a great option to consider. Thanks for sharing!

It is a wonderful gift, Jo. I was very moved, not only by all the effort you made, but also by the feelings brought forward by so many of the photos, especially those images I had not seen before. It was wonderful to be so transported. Quite a labor of love; thank you so much.

I was introduced to blurb.com last year and made a birthday book for my fiance's 30th. It's been easy to use too, plus great layouts.

Cath said...

So glad your father fell right into loving this gift... who wouldn't?! It's one of the most treasured treats to let someone know how much they are loved. I made one for my own father for his 70th recently and, although I couldn't be with the gang when he opened it, my siblings shared how he just quietly and slowly moved through each page, taking it all in. How beautiful that you were able to experience this right along with him. It looks wonderful.

Journeyin' Lady... said...

The book is beautiful, the photos are wonderful (your Mom and Dad look so young and happy on their wedding day-made me think of my wedding day at about that age!) and the thought you put into it is priceless.

Sarah Bradley said...

What a special gift. I'm sure he will treasure it always! :)

Joanna Goddard said...

Definitely a beautiful and thoughtful book. I've been procrastinating on making our wedding album...I'll be sure to visit Pinhole Press.

Sara said...

This is such a sweet gift! Very thoughtful and heartwarming.

Jill said...

My husband surprised me at Christmas by making me one called "ONE" that documents the first year of our daughter's life. I've written her a letter every month and he included those at the top of each months' photos. It's the best present I've ever received.

Bron said...

Omigosh -- I love it so much! heading over to Pinhole right now.

p.s You are the best daughter!

Love it.

Bits 'n' Bobs said...

This is so great. The cover photo is to die for! I always wonder, what do you get the dad who has everything? I started making photobooks for my dad a couple years ago; before that we gave him everything from photo calendars to coasters with our pictures on them as gifts! It never gets old, pictures never fail.

Conduit Press said...

it's so beautiful and timeless- your father will undoubtedly enjoy it forever.

so funny, in the moment i'm collecting photos from my father because in may is his 50s birthday and i want to make him, as you did, a photobook. so good inspiration- just photos and no kitschy stuff around (as little stickers or horrible tipograph. ... my englisch is really bad, sorry).
love your blog!

I love this book! I sent my Dad this link for some ideas for my Mom's 60th this year. He responded immediately to tell me that he and my Mom used to hang out with your parents in Chavenay in the early 80's! It's funny to place Joanna and Lucy from some of my childhood pictures, after having read your blog for so long :)

For some reason I missed this post the first time around. Beautiful gift! I think that your dad looks exactly like Toby in his wedding photo, with his goofy expression!

Jessie said...

I got to this entry from your "What British Say vs What They Mean" entry. Your Dad was a looker back in the day! Not bad these days either... am I allowed to say that? ;) I loved the old pictures!

Irka said...

I was thinking the same thing. But also since I won't be on his birthday, they live overseas I want to ask my mom to bring it to his birthday and family member can write personal messages inside for him.
