Kowalczyk, I can highly recommend Platinum Fox, it's a beautiful book full of stunning pictures. I have Marilyn at 20th Century Fox, so I thought the books would be fairly similar at first, but believe me, they're completely different, highly recommended.

I second that! Awesome book! and yeah about the SLIH book, I wouldnt pay a ridiculous price - just on the wish list lol

I'll be saving some money for the Christie's Catalogue. That's the book I want next!
Scottish Sugar
I work part time in a Supermarket and through having to deal with customers day in, day out, I met a woman who is a Marilyn fan (I knew this because she carried a Marilyn purse)

Well anyway, a few weeks later, she comes up to me and says "Do you still like Marilyn Monroe?".. "of course!" I said, then she goes on to tell me that she's moving back to Australia and was having a clear out and GIVES me the Marilyn Christies auction catalogue for free! saying that she's rather it went to someone who was really going to appreciate it. I was astounded and gobsmacked that someone would be that kind and generous to a girl they don't even know properly.
The best thing about it was.. she didn't even know my name and yet she was willing to do something that thoughtful for me. Really made my day.. no YEAR! smile1.gif

So anyway, the Christie's catalogue is a wonderful book, I highly recommend you get it smile1.gif

Good for you Scottish Sugar clapping.gif clapping.gif

Christie's catalog is awesome. It's expensive and hard to find in bookstores. I got lucky years ago and Christie's was mine for like $40. I was shocked, ran out of the store thinking they'd make a mistake. I LOVE it.

Wow - looking back since my first post in 2006 I've gotten quiet a few for my collection. I finally got a copy of The Complete Last Sitting the other day - I got it delivered to my work and when it arrived I had tears -- but luckly the people I work with understand that it was a big want for me! Here is my updated list (not including new ones that havent been released yet)

I did some pretty heavy editing on my wish list and now it only has six books (plus two that haven't been published yet). Those six are the ones that interest me most at the moment, see first page and very first post for my new wish list smile1.gif

I will be going through my Marilyn stuff (mostly books) soon. Im thinking about selling them but only want them to go to a loving Marilyn fan, thats why I am talking about it here. I currently live in AZ in the US. I would prefer if someone can swing down who lives in AZ and pick them up because I dont want to pay for shipping. Or if I sell them individually maybe I can ship them within the US. If anyone is interested let me know, if so, I will list out all the books Im willing to part with here.

marilynbybrandon_190.gif Hi Mel, I'd love some MM books - the soft cover ones with lots and lots of pix - especially DeDienes and some others that I can't think of. I live in Hawaii though.
I think you should list them here because as you said, they should go to someone who loves MM.

marilynbybrandon_190.gif Hi Mel, thanks for posting the list. The 2 soft cover ones sound awesome. Are there lots of pictures in them? I prefer soft cover books. Do they lie flat when opened? Also, you didn't include prices or payment method. Hopefully you have paypal.

Update: My 3 books arrived safely along with a lovely card with note from Mel.
The books are great though they don't have any new pix in them. They are wonderful additions to my MM collection. I have mostly kindle books and now 4 soft cover and 2 hard cover ones to go with them.

Marilyn: A Life in Pictures is very pretty with big pages and a nice typeset. There are several full page photos in it.

The Ultimate Marilyn is a smaller book in terms of page size. It has a lot of information and also Marilyn quizzes.

Movie Icons Monroe Taschen is a small hard cover book and the pages are glossy heavy paper...lots of nice pix non-English text.

Any of these books would be great for your MM library.

Thanks again Mel clapping.gif I ended up having the iced mocha coffee and the chilled water.

Hey! One softcover book is large and is a picture book Marilyn a Life in Pictures. The other is a reference book that has pictures in it The Ultimate Marilyn. I did think of you going through one book that I didn't post. Its a hardcover book but its nothing but pictures and the size of the book is small for it being a picture book so its handy. Let me know if your interested in it. Usually soft cover picture books don't lie flat when opened, hardcover usually does. Marilyn Monroe in the Movies has a lot of pictures from her movies but is not a picture book necessarily. Marilyn a Life in Pictures that I mentioned earlier is a picture book but its quite large size wise. I will work on the prices thumbup1.gif Yes paypal payments only! smile1.gif

I have about 7 more books that I have to read quickly through to determine if I still want them or not. So I will come back and update the list.

marilynbybrandon_190.gif Hi Mel, the small book sounds good though it's hard cover...Really like picture books the best...Please forgive the delay in replying, my laptop died and I am struggling away on my XP netbook so things take longer and internet is totally slow or off here. A lot of the time when I am on the forum the most current posts are not showing up as well. I don't know why that happens.

ps: also: I am still looking for that article which I think is a 1962 Movie Stars or Movie Life - it has about 8 or 10 pix MM with Jack Lord during their actor's studio days in 1955. A good scan would be sufficient as I am making my collections digital.

yay! I just PMed you! banana.gif jumpymm.gif I just noticed the Marilyn a Life in Pictures softcover stays open when you lay it flat!
JC 96816
marilynbybrandon_190.gif Thanks Mel, that is good...I am concerned about that because when I get a book I scan my favorite stuff to save wear and tear on the book. I love soft cover books especially those with lots of pix. I wish I had the DeDienes ones and that Metamorphosis was soft cover...can't think of anymore but I hope these books of yours have pix that are new to me...I notice books tend to print the same pix over and over.

I will pm you my email etc so you know where to send the paypal invoice.
