Schirmer/Mosel Verlag, 2000. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Quarto, 463 pages; VG/VG; spine white with black lettering; dust jacket protected with a mylar covering; slight wear to head and tail of spine; small dog-ear to page 115; small mark to top edge of text block; with 2571 photographs, 375 in full color; shelved case 11. Bert Stern, the famous commercial and fashion photographer of the 60s, was the last to be granted a sitting by Marilyn Monroe six weeks before her tragic death. The three-day session yielded nearly 2,600 pictures--fashion, portrait, and nude studies--of indescribable sensual and human vibrancy, of which no more than 20 were published. And yet these few photographs ineradicably shaped our image of Marilyn Monroe. This book presents the complete set of 2,571 photos. The monumental body of work by the master photographer and the Hollywood actress marks a climax in the history of star photography, both in quantity and quality. It is a unique affirmation of the erotic dimension of photography and the eroticism of taking photos, and it is the world's finest and largest tribute to Marilyn Monroe. Shelved Dupont Bookstore.
