This book is an exception to all the other Marilyn Books. You will get reproductions of her personal documents, from Marriage License, SAG Card, Personal Letters and many more, encased in plastic folders. I found this book to be Special in my Marilyn Monroe Library. A Must for Marilyn Fans!

My 17 yearold daughter loves all stuff Marilyn. I bought the book for her birthday, which is in October, I am sure she will love it. I know after I looked through the book, it had a lot of fun facts and copies of birth/marriage/death certificates, rental agreement, contracts...etc. Just a bunch of fun stuff. Price was great and it would make a great gift for a Marilyn enthusiast.
