A "baby book for the home" — that is meant to stay with the home
—The Home History Book™ Deluxe archival journal is a sturdy, heirloom-quality book created to help you tell and share your home's unique story.
While future owners can always track down a home's deed or other legal documents (and there is place to display that and the rest of your home's history in your Home History Book) it is the story of what happens in the home — your family's story while you are there — that is most meaningful in helping explain what makes a house a home. From family and neighborhood photos and stories; to "before" and "after" renovation project shots; to perhaps sharing a favorite family recipe cooked in the home's kitchen... those are the stories that matter and will be wonderful to share generations from now.
Our Deluxe book is printed and hard-bound in the United States in a rich, durable synthetic leather that, frankly, most believe to be the real thing the first time they see and feel it. The cover comes in two colors: a dark Mahogany or rich Crimson. There are also two page styles available: our simple, clean Classic style or an elegantly designed Vintage look.
Our Deluxe Home History Book also features our unique door panel design that tells you your journal is an authentic Home History Book from Houstory® Publishing.
Home History Books make thoughtful housewarming gifts and treasured wedding or holiday presents. They are also an ideal and meaningful closing gift or staging tool for real estate professionals.
Each book includes a sturdy brass nameplate that is engraved with the home's address and permanently affixed to the book's cover. Each book is beautifully presented, wrapped in a custom book cloth, in an acid-free, archival quality box that can double as long-term storage box for your original photos and other historical documents. The book also comes with an archival supply "Starter Kit" that includes some archival quality photo sleeves and an acid-free pen to get you started.
Each Deluxe book also comes with a complimentary custom bookstand that helps you to proudly display your book and your home's history.
Please allow three-four weeks for customization and delivery of your archival journal.
