Marilyn Monroe: The Personal Archives


The book is impressive to hold in your hands.  The cover is a kind of cushy and soft.

I love how the fold-out envelopes make use of full page shots of Marilyn.  This book is similar to The Marilyn Monroe Treasures in that it features copies of documents, letters, checks, etc.  I gave permission to use my Marilyn signed check in the book.

Personally, I love looking through items like this and the ability to hold them in your hands is great.  I especially loved seeing the dog license for Hugo included.

There are no surprises as far as photos go.  It is a nice looking book but if I was to choose this or treasures I would probably say treasures.  If you are torn between this and the author's other MM book Platinum Fox, go for the Fox.
