Bespoke Books for Life's Best Moments



Modern Heirloom Books, launched in 2015 by longtime magazine editor Dawn Roode, is a custom studio creating bespoke books for families and individuals. With a primary focus on capturing stories and photos for the next generation—and showcasing those memories in luxurious coffee table books—Dawn creates heirlooms that families revisit often, even as their legacy continues to grow.

A recent signature line of gift books was inspired by a bride who wanted to honor her soon-to-be partner with a most special wedding day gift. After that joyful and emotional experience, the Ultimate Groom Gift was born!

Go above and beyond the go-to watch gift with a one-of-kind heirloom book that spells out your love—and gratitude—for your groom. Through a 90-minute interview, Dawn helps you find the words and sentiments to shape your love story, then crafts an elegant extended letter to your groom: Your words, your photos, elevated into a gift destined to become your first family heirloom.

“Your wedding day is once-in-a-lifetime, the start of the next chapter of your lives together—so why not set the tone early with a gift that is as personal as it gets?” Dawn says.

Dawn is thrilled to be able to use the skills she honed at Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and Vogue to help you give the star treatment to the one you adore.

Seeing is believing, so set up an free consultation to browse sample books and be inspired.
