‘Monroerama’ in France

Marilyn makes the cover of the latest Les Inrockuptibles magazine, with an article inside about a new, myth-busting book, Monroerama.

Girl Waiting, a 64pp paperback featuring drawings by Marilyn and photos by Joshua Logan, has just been published with the permission of Monroe’s estate (no word on an English version as yet.)

And finally (for now), a special edition ‘Star Book’ magazine dedicated to Marilyn has also been released.

Following the success of Fragments, Marilyn’s estate have approved two new books to be published later this year, reports Canoe.ca:

“The first book Girl Waiting, to be published in May, brings together drawings of Marilyn Monroe, unreleased, and a series of photographs where the blonde icon appears in front of paintings by great masters. These photos were taken by Joshua Logan shortly after the filming of Bus Stop.

The other book, edited by Bernard Comment, features the entire personal archive of Marilyn Monroe kept partly in New York and partly in Los Angeles.┬áSome 500 documents were selected from the archives, to a large volume to be published in November 2012.”
