The official publisher for The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration, St James's House, has announced that a limited-edition, commemorative album has been released to mark The Queen's birthday celebration in Windsor this year.

The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration is a spectacular four-night show at Windsor Castle that opened on Thursday, 12 May. On each evening, more than 1,500 people and 900 horses take part in a 90-minute celebration along with actors, bands and dancers to tell the story of The Queen's life. While tickets to the show sold out within hours, the final show will be broadcast live by ITV on Sunday.

Featuring a cover embossed with Arnold Machin's iconic portrait of Her Majesty The Queen, 'The Queen at 90' is a hardback, fully illustrated, commemorative album that provides a rich photographic record of The Queen's life and tells her life story over 90 years, from her birth and marriage to her reign of more than 60 years. It also reflects on the United Kingdom's role and influence during her lifetime. The book is the only commemorative album to be sanctioned and endorsed by the event organisers. St James's House has also produced the official event programme. 
  
The commemorative album will be presented as a gift to VVIP and VIP guests at The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration. Both the album and programme are also available to the general public, and can be ordered online at www.hmq90books.com . A number of retailers – including Selfridges, Amazon, Mail Book Shop and Royal Mail with its popular online shop for selling stamps, collectibles and gifts – will sell one or both of the publications.

St James's House has previously worked on several projects related to the Royal Family, creating the official programme and commemorative album for the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in 2012, as well as producing a celebratory publication for His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh's 90th birthday celebration at Windsor Castle in 2011.

Anna Danby, Head of Creative at St James's House, said: "We enlisted the help of a number of leading royal experts and partners to bring together this wonderful celebration of The Queen's life to date. The pages of this album take the reader on a visual journey, providing a real insight into the life of one of the most celebrated women in the world. The album will be a truly beautiful souvenir of this historic occasion that I am sure will be cherished for years to come by those lucky to get their hands on a copy."

"It's a great privilege to work with the organisers of The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration," added Richard Freed, Chief Executive of St James's House. "As the official publisher, we've been entrusted with telling The Queen's story. Over the four evenings, more than 25,000 VIPs, guests and spectators will attend the event, and the commemorative album will enable The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration to reach an even wider audience."
