Heirloom Private Biography
Our Heirloom Biography is the ultimate celebration of a life. Think of it as a private biography, or a private autobiography. In addition to a gorgeous book made to last 300 years, there are other benefits. Forgotten memories often return; the act of telling your story to an impartial, interested witness is often therapeutic; a great excitement gathers around the biography process; a wonderful book results! As one of our clients said, “You can’t put a price on that.” Learn more about the work of a personal biographer.
Our biographies that become family treasures the instant you first hold them in your hands. They are professionally written in the most compelling manner and are perfectly researched to capture the full history and context of a life. Because of the paper, ink and primarily because of the archive-quality binding, they are made to last approximately 200 years (compared to glue or “perfect” binding, which will begin to deteriorate within a few decades). See samples of our books.
