I have an extensive Marilyn collection, however I don't have this book yet. I adore his series of photos of Marilyn but his book seems rather pricey to me. For those that have the book is it worth the asking price?

Thanks.

How much are they asking for it? biggrin.gif I have the German version of it, and I do like it a lot!!!! I don't remember paying more than 30 dollars for it, and that was very reasonable indeed.

Asking price is $65 plus shipping. I've looked all over for a used or different addition without success. :(

What size is it actually?

Yesterday, I went shopping in Leer (Germany) and I saw the book! But it was in German. no.gif Although I don't have problems with reading in German, I rather have it in English or Dutch. The book seemed cool, and I really want to have it, but unfortunately it isn't available (yet) in the Netherlands. Seems I have to get a creditcard and do some Marilyn bookshopping on Amazon.com laugh.gif
Marloes
I got the book, in English. I have the newest edition. I expected it too be big, but it's real small for a picture book. The pictures are gorgeous, I don't like the text, written by Kirkland, all the time. But it's a good book, if you go for the pictures.
Nina
mhhhh, I like the pictures a lot too (better, I throb.gif them) but I'm not happy with the quality. They look milky and blurred - that's sad. Otherwise I think it's a great picture book.

It's grainy, but in the book Kirkland tells that I was supposed to be grainy. Hmmm... I would have like them better when they were sharp too.

I was walking through Barnes & Nobles tonight and what do I see?!? The new version of this book! So I snatched it up!

It is the small version... I love the colors of the book!
Zelda Zonk
Well, lucky you, CJ! I'm sure you're loving it. biggrin.gif I have one question though: just how small is the book?
wootness

I found this book today at the Book Fair. It's the smaller edition, but I love it biggrin.gif I read some of it on the bus on my way home. The pictures are lovely.
Tara
Oh how lucky!
Marloes
I have it too, it's a beautiful little book! biggrin.gif

Elsie Marina
oo I have this one too I got it last year, its fairly easy to get around here! biggrin.gif
Paju
I feel lucky, because I haven't seen the book here ever before. Of course I could have ordered it from Amazon, but somehow other books always came first... Now that I saw this book on the Book Fair I just had to get it. It's so cute smile1.gif

So is this version a reissue? : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-...lyn-Monroe.html

I'd not heard of this book before! Though it does feel like a 50 years cash in.

It does sound like a reissue, the other one is long out of print. I'd be interested in this, because I never bought the first one. But it would have to be something special. The product details suggest it's a bigger size, but the UK price is quite steep, IMO...

I actually ordered this book as a second hand one a few months ago and it never arrived. Need to check what happened there.
However this new version sounds very promising!
Robby
Just today I reread this book, and although the pictures are wonderful, some of the text got me confused. Does anyone believe Marilyn invited Kirkland in bed with her?
