MAKING THE WORLD FEEL GOOD ONE BOOK AT A TIME

We created The Book of Everyone as a gigantic heart-thumping, grin-inducing, lip-wobbling celebration of the individual. Your mom, your son, your lifelong friend, your local baker and smile-maker. Because everyone needs to feel loved and unique. And knowing that you share 50% of your DNA with a banana or a billion atoms with Shakespeare is really very important.

Founded by creative directors Jonny Biggins, Jason Bramley, and Steve Hanson, the idea was sparked when Steve purchased all the newspapers on the birth of his son Saul as a keepsake for his 21st birthday (please don’t tell him, he still doesn’t know). They set to work on creating a personalization platform that could instantly create a book tailored to anyone, stuffed full with curious facts and curveball miscellany, all set against a backdrop of world events.

It’s a daily labor of love that involves all our favourite artists, designers and photographers. Today, we are a multicultural team of writers, designers, technologists, marketers, and lifelong dreamers with hearts set on spreading a big fat dollop of wonderful across the world. With over 100,000 books in 175 countries so far, we’ve made a start. Just around 7 billion to go.
