Marilyn Monroe by David Wills
Book DescriptionThere have been many Marilyn photo books - but nothing like this. Australian-born curator and preservationist David Wills has accrued one of the world's largest independent archives of original Marilyn Monroe photographs. Now, in "Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis", he has gathered spectacular work of the key Marilyn photographers - and dozens of unknowns - to create the most dazzling portfolio of images from every period in Marilyn Monroe's life, from her earliest sittings in 1942 till just weeks before her death two decades later. With more than two hundred first-generation photos - including countless luminous, unseen color photos from the very start of her career - "Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis" chronicles her meteoric rise from a humble catalog model to one of the most recognized faces in history. No other book even comes close.
