Signature Style: The Naturist

A truly unique concept, The Naturist Novoir™ captures an essence of outdoors, with its imported olive color, natural grain French Chagreen 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. Its striking, original design incorporates real birch bark inlays, as inspired by the ‘cuir-cisele’ bookbinding technique. This Marilyn’s Memoir™ original Novoir design is a considerable 9” x 11” and its title, (an example, Perfect Opposites, as shown) is hand tooled in gold foil, with its subtitle (e.g. The Jim and Sarah Pitzner Story) also stamped in gold on the book’s spine. The Naturist 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 Naturist 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 pure silk broadcloth. An elegant dark green 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 Naturist Novoir comes with its own slipcase, to protect it when on the bookshelf or otherwise put away. Hardcover copies of your Novoir are also available, which contain the same interior layout as the custom Naturist 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 Naturist Novoir will become a treasured heirloom, to proudly display, preserving for all time “The Greatest Story Ever Told. Yours.”
