The Marilyn Monroe Treasures
With her ineffable combination of girlish innocence, glamorous sex appeal, and palpable presence on the silver screen, Marilyn Monroe bears an unmatched legacy marked by beauty, style, and mystique. The Marilyn Monroe Treasures, both a compelling biographical narrative and a collector’s delight, is a unique and meaningful addition to the Marilyn library. Featuring a number of unseen photographs, such as a soldier’s snapshots of Marilyn entertaining the troops in Korea, as well as many unpublished pieces of memorabilia, including an exquisite watercolor rose that Marilyn painted as a gift for President John F. Kennedy’s birthday, The Marilyn Monroe Treasures is a lavishly illustrated feast of beautiful imagery and ephemera from the life of one of the world’s most beloved stars.
