Head to www.thebookofeveryone.com, add some basic information like name and date of birth of the recipient, plus some other embellishments of your choosing – maybe a photograph – and let the site create a hard copy which is sent out to your loved one.
It runs various algorithms around the name and date of birth of recipients and weaves this personal information together with relevant facts and illustrations. You get to control the final edit and have the option to choose what goes in.

It has been conceived by Jason Bramley, Jonny Biggins, and Steve Hanson who all come from an ad agency background.
The trio has worked with a network of artists and copywriters to hone the final product.
They were looking to create something that was ‘well-designed and beautifully produced’ according to gallery KK Outlet which is hosting a book launch and exhibition.
Meanwhile the gallery has invited the image-makers to take a fact or figure from the books and bring them to life.
For example Damien Poulain shows us that ‘25 MPH is the maximum ground speed of a wild turkey.’
