Signed limited edition publication of Mailer's 1973 biography Marilyn with Bert Stern's iconic photographs of the star.
Conceived by Lawrence Schiller, Mailer's frequent collaborator, the book combines the biography of the tragic, complex sex symbol with Stern's intimate photographs of the 36-year-old Marilyn. Photographed for Vogue magazine over three days at the Bel-Air Hotel, in this 'last sitting' Marilyn allowed unfettered access like never before. Six weeks after the photographs were taken, Marilyn died. This publication offers unparalleled insight into the life and personality of the Hollywood legend.
