This is an awesome book for any Marilyn Monroe fan - hundreds of amazing art images, most rarely seen.
Philip R. Jaeger
The newly released, beautifully rich looking book "Marilyn in Art" is simply stunning in its wide range of artistic interpretations of Marilyn Monroe.
Betty Jane Davies
So, some will find the most sublime images too "ordinary" and, some will find the more abstract works the most "visionary".

I just received my book yesterday and read it cover to cover immediately! The art contained within this collection is a sight to behold. There are many different styles to appeal to all different tastes and the wonderful quotes add so much to each page! It is a beautiful tribute to an amazingly beautiful woman! And having one of my own paintings featured in this book has also been a dream come true for me. If you love Marilyn, buy this book!!

Format: Hardcover
Marilyn Monroe was an icon of our time. It is hard to believe that if she had lived she would have just had her eightieth birthday. And it's hard to believe that she has been dead for forty four years. She was only 36 when she died.

This book, MARILYN IN ART is a beautiful collection of drawings made of her by a wide variety of artists. In some cases she is cartoon like, others more like classical photographs. Each seems to manage to capture some essense of the woman. The art is combined with short quotes from a wide range of people who knew her, worked with her, photographed her or had some kind of relationship with her.

The book doesn't attempt to answer any of the questions about her death, it doesn't go into a psychological analysis of the likelihood of suicide. Instead it is a tribute to her, to her work, to the times she helped to create. And in this it is a great book. Perhaps the art shows more of the inside of Marilyn than photographs could. It's a book hard to put down, even after you've been through it once.

The book has finally reached me and waiting for it was well worth it. What a great feeling to see some of my art work in it! A lot of the art works published in it is truly beautiful and there is everything to fit all tastes! What a pleasure it is to see some friends' paintings: William Davies, Albert Leonard, Mary Belzunce, Frederic Cabanas... Thank you to Roger Taylor for compiling such a superb book.A must for all fans!

Format: Hardcover
This cavalcade of artist's visions of the legendary Marilyn Monroe is simply spectacular. Now, being one of the artists featured in this volume has absolutely NOTHING to do with my impression, except to say that I am truly honored to have been included with the dozens of supremely talented individuals whose works comprise this book. As with any field of "art", it is ultimately the viewer whose impression is the true judge. So, some will find the most sublime images too "ordinary" and, some will find the more abstract works the most "visionary". But, whatever your taste in art, there is something here you will find most satisfying. Monroe's image has proven it can stand the test of time and, these images, all the various facets of the diamond we call "Marilyn", are testiment to that fact.
