Format: Paperback
I guarantee you'll see collectibles on Marilyn Monroe you have never seen before. One can tell it took a lot of time to be able to organize everything for this book. I was extremely satisfied with the book and I can say the author spent a considerable amount of time on this project. And it's a good thing he did because it's one of the rare books on Marilyn Monroe where it feels fresh every time you pick it up and open it. I can't praise this book enough and please buy his other book "Marilyn Monroe: Cover to Cover" which is excellent as well.

I found this book to be an outstanding reference for Marilyn memorabilia. It was bought as a Christmas gift and I'm sure the recipient will be absolutely ecstatic about it. Lists so many items that are very very hard to find.
