Signature Style: The Landscape

The Landscape Novoir™ is perhaps our most striking and unusual Marilyn’s Memoir™ original Novoir design. Rendered in landscape orientation, its 11” x 13” expanse is covered in Biscuit-colored, imported natural grain Nigerian Oasis Goatskin. It’s a perfect coffee table book size, something you’ll proudly display for friends, family, and all who visit your home to see. Our master artisan bookbinder uses various techniques on The Landscape Novoir to produce a truly arresting look. Diamond shapes are raised and recessed, then covered with “puckered” leather, each bound version completely hand done, and therefore totally unique, all slightly different. The book’s title (Marilyn’s Memoir for example) is stamped in the recessed diamond, and the diamond cut-out displays the photo of your choice. Its subtitle (e.g. The Marilyn Pitzner Story) is stamped on the book’s spine. The Landscape Novoir’s fore edge, or flap, has an imbedded magnetic strip, offering a unique look that also keeps the book securely shut when closed. Create your Landscape Novoir™ now!



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 Japanese deluxe broadcloth. An elegant beige 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 Landscape Novoir comes with its own beige clam-shell case, specially designed to protect the raised elements and “puckered” leather from incurring any scratches or wear. Hardcover copies of your Novoir are also available, which contain the same interior layout as the custom Landscape 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 Landscape Novoir will become a treasured heirloom, to proudly display, preserving for all time “The Greatest Story Ever Told. Yours.”
