Curator and photographic preservationist David Wills has amassed one of the world?s largest independent archives of original Marilyn Monroe photographs.

  • FANTASTIC PHOTOGRAPHY

    12/24/2011 I ordered this book for a friend who's a big Marilyn fan, I was taken aback by the fantastic photography, photos even I have never seen in all the years I have followed her career and life. Anyone who's a big Marilyn fan should get this book they'll never be disappointed. All photographs cover her career from when she started to her last great photos. I rate this book five ***** Stars for great quality, photos and great text.My friend will be thrilled when she opens her Christmas package tomorrow.. Joefrank
