Signature Style: The Classic

The Classic Novoir is a beautifully styled volume, a Marilyn’s Memoir™ original design, in gray and black leathers and silver embossing. This substantial 9” x 11” book is covered in imported, natural-grain Nigerian Oasis Goatskin, producing the luxurious feel of the finest leather. The edges of the boards used in its construction have also been rounded, or chamfered, by hand to further enhance a comfortable feel. The custom touch of the visually-appealing recessed panel, set in black goatskin with an elegant graphic design, is tooled in silver foil. The graphic has gracefully curving patterns and includes the life-affirming images of tree leaves and a small flying dove. Create your Classic Novoir™ now!



Below the cover design, the book’s title (Marilyn’s Memoir as shown in the photo) is tooled in silver, as is the subtitle, bearing the book’s subject’s name, (e.g. The Marilyn Pitzner Story) on the spine. The Novoir’s fore edge, or flap, has an imbedded magnetic strip, offering a unique look that also keeps the book securely shut when closed.

Every detail has been considered and incorporated into this Novoir to make it of lasting heirloom quality. Its inner hinges are comprised of the same leather as used on the cover. The inner doublure, or lining, is pure silk broadcloth. An elegant silver ribbon register, or bookmark, hangs gracefully from the bottom of the pages. The beautifully rendered interior graphic layout harmonizes with the colors and design elements of the Novoir’s cover. Your personal photos, letters, or other memorabilia will be artfully showcased on the pages, surrounding the written text of your story. Properly handled, the pages themselves will not age or change over generations, since they are made of heavy weight archival paper and printed in archival inks.

Your Classic Novoir comes with its own gray cloth-covered slipcase, to protect it when on the bookshelf or otherwise put away. Hardcover copies of your Novoir are also available, which contain the exact same interior layout as the custom Classic Novoir, and have a cover designed to reflect that of the custom book. These copies can be given to friends and family as gifts if desired.

We trust that your choice of a beautiful Classic Novoir will become a treasured heirloom, to proudly display, preserving for all time “The Greatest Story Ever Told. Yours.”
