There is a new book coming out in October. From the publisher's website:

A stunning collection of hundreds of rare and unseen photographs, behind-the-scenes notes, and interviews chronicling the media’s lifelong love affair with Marilyn, created by the acclaimed curator and author of Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis.

Needless to say I am anxiously waiting for this one. Metamorphosis is gorgeous, so I except this one will be gorgeous as well!

Well, that's a rare cover photo laugh.gif I would have put a stunning RARE image on the cover if it was my book. Maybe a rare one from a commonly seen sitting.
Thanks thumbup1.gif
Paju
I was thinking the same thing. I do believe there are some rare ones inside the book, but why not put one on the cover as well?

Why indeed, Sirkku thumbup1.gif

It does illustrate the fact that she was the eye of the publicity hurricane, but would have loved to see a rare one on the cover. Hopefully there are treasures inside. Metamorphosis was well done and the pics were excellent quality. Can't wait for this one.

Just received this one. The lay-out is very nice. However I have to agree with what has been said before, no new pictures. There are a few rare ones though. The book also contains a few nice quotes. Some pictures are a bit pixelated, sadly. I prefer "Metamorphosis".
CYRILPARIS
I agree with you Robby. The "Metamorphosis" book is very beautiful and it's only a photos book.
For Marilyn in the flash, It looks like a scrapbook and It shows the relationship of the press with Marilyn.
I was a bit disappointed compared other book with the size of the photos. The rare photos are in small format and most of the photos are tagged by captions, text, photos credit... What a pity!
I see that the author bought many photos from ebay's sellers "Mymoviememorabilia" and "Greatclassics" so may be he want protect them against copying I found too some errors for dates, places and captions but it's a real beautiful book but different of "Metamorphosis".
You can order it to Santa Claus santa.gif

Thanks so much for the comparison. Not sure I will get this one seeing as I have Metamorphosis. Not many new pictures, really.
ronaldo
The book is just stunning!

I like the book,too.
Beside the patches on the photos and that there are not so many new ones it is more than worth to be in my collection.
And you know what - I will read it! coolio.gif

Wills has done a good job here.

I just got this one. So far I'm loving it. The photos are stunning and such high quality. Just beautiful smile1.gif
Stacy
It is a beautifully done book. Even though we've seen a great majority of the photos, they are displayed in a very pleasing way. It traces Marilyn's relationship with the press from her time as a model to the Dodgers game in 1962. I agree with Eric, there is some misinformation in the book, but not intentionally. I would recommend this book as one to definitely have in your collection, especially since it is a companion to Marilyn Metamorphosis.
Margherita
I don't have this book and propably won't buy it, but I really like this kind of good quality picture books of Marilyn with some text. It's so nice to go through the photos while sitting relaxed in an armchair, you don't always want to sit by the computer.

When it comes to the rarity of the photos, like guessed, they are not rare.

There are actually a number of rare and unseen photos. Plus the quality of each and every one of them is truly outstanding. Highly recommended!
Stacy
I agree Ronaldo. The quality of the book far outweighs any mistakes or reprints.
