Didn't see a thread about this book, except this one. Anyway, I just ordered Marilyn By Moonlight today and I'm thrilled! jumpymm.gif
If you have it, please share some thoughts - and pictures from inside the book would be highly appreciated as well!

Can't say I've heard of the book Tiina, but what a gorgeous title! Hope you enjoy it.

Here's the interview with the author. I always wanted this book!

Where did you order it from Tiina? It seems hard to find nowadays, but is high on my wishlist.
Alanma
There are copies now on Amazon starting at around 99, or a bit cheaper on Abebooks at around 50.

I think I will have to wait a bit, too!
Tiina
Thanks for the interview Magda! jumpymm.gif
Allen says in his website Dream City Photo that marilynbymoonlight.net should be back soon. I don't know how long soon means... and it has been on its way back for quite some time already laugh.gif But I'd assume that when it does come back, you'll be able to buy the book there, if he has any copies left.

Anyways, I got really lucky yesterday as I noticed there was one copy on Amazon going for 100 dollars, which is acceptable when it comes to this book in my opinion, it's 64 euros. I've seen it going for so much higher. My book is also a brand new copy and if I remember right it was numbered 122/500, so I thought it's a pretty good catch. And this book has been on the top of my wishlist for a very long time as well! balloon.gif Now I just can't wait for it to arrive!
Meikkuli
Wow congrats, Tiina! smile1.gif Did you get a chance to look at it in my place? Guess not :-)

Anyway, it's gorgeous. Photos with little quotes by MM... very artistically done... you have to see it for yourself, it's hard to describe it smile1.gif You'll love it for sure smile1.gif
Tiina
Thanks Merja! smile1.gif
Nope! And I wonder why?? I mean I wonder how come I never looked for it during our meetings huh.gif
Well, I'm pretty sure it's a beautiful book even if i haven't seen it beforehand balloon.gif

EDIT: Oh, you added a bit more text hehehe balloon.gif Wow, sounds really great! I love artistic MM books! laugh.gif

Is this book thick? And big? For some reason I assume it's pretty big...
Meikkuli
It's really not THAT thick, like 130 pages or so. As for how big it is, it is approximately the same size (with the protective cover) lengthwise as Marilyn in Spain (maybe 0.5 centimeters less), but not as thick. But it really is lovely smile1.gif
Tiina
It's pretty big then smile1.gif
Meikkuli
Well it's not a huge book, but it's a lovely book :-)
