" I ordered a book with a personalised touch (from my youngest kids to their grandma). Having the option to personalise is one of the reasons I bought it. It was promptly delivered, no fuss, no delays. An absolutely beautiful pictorial historical account of my Mum's home town, which I am sure she will be delighted with.

Thank you very much Francis Frith."
