There have been many Marilyn Monroe photo books?but nothing like this.

Curator and photographic preservationist David Wills has amassed one of the world?s largest independent archives of original Marilyn Monroe photographs. Now, in Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis, he has gathered spectacular, museum-quality work from Marilyn?s key photographers?Richard Avedon, George Barris, Cecil Beaton, Bernard of Hollywood, Andre de Dienes, Elliott Erwitt, Milton Greene, Philippe Halsman, Tom Kelley, Douglas Kirkland, Willy Rizzo, Sam Shaw, and many others?to create this dazzling portfolio of images from every period of Marilyn Monroe?s adult life, from her wedding day in 1942 till just weeks before her death two decades later. Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis pays homage to her continually evolving style and extraordinary beauty.

Among the highlights:

  • Previously unseen Kodachrome, dye transfer, and Carbro prints of Norma Jeane from her modeling career.
  • Classic portraits and pinups in luscious full color, digitally restored from the original transparencies.
  • Never-before-seen photos from the sets of The Seven Year Itch, Some Like It Hot, The Misfits, and Something?s Got to Give.

  • Previously unpublished photos by Richard Avedon, George Barris, Cecil Beaton, David Conover, Elliott Erwitt, John Florea, Tom Kelley, Richard C. Miller, Frank Powolny, Willy Rizzo, Zinn Arthur, and many others.

    Verified Purchase

    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
