    Bought this as a gift so did not open it fully but it was in perfect condition and sealed well. Seemed very heavy and weighty, a great present for a Marilyn fan! Was told the images inside were fab also.

    As every avid Marilyn fan will know, new photo books can often be slightly disappointing, as they are generally rehashes of what's gone before, and will inevitably contain photos which have already been seen many times. - Well, this book does contain lots of photos that are already well known, but it also has quite a good number of not so well known ones, and some that I personally hadn't seen previously.Sized at approximately 300mm x 240mm x 34mm, and weighing in at something like 2.1kg, this is a substantial volume.Where the book immediately scores very highly, is the sheer quality. It is a superbly made book. The pages are of heavyweight paper, the front and back covers are very substantial thick hard fabric faced board, and the binding is excellent.Where the book scores highest though, is in the print quality of the photographs. Many of these photos will be familiar, but in this volume, they are printed to their absolute best. Yes, the book may be somewhat light on text - but it is clearly not meant to be a story book - It is a photo book, and it is one of the very best Marilyn photo books to come along in a very long time.In my opinion, a book that should be in the collection of every Marilyn fan.

    'Metamorphosis' is a very beautiful - and big! - coffee-table type of book about Marilyn Monroe. The photographs are chronologically divided into sections so we get to follow her "transformation" from Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe. It is packed with full page pictures aswell as some quotes about her, made by various people who were connected to her in one way or another.I don't think hardcore fans of Monroe will find much new info in this book, but the pictures are very enjoyable anyways. If you expect rare photos and new information, you'll probably have to look elsewhere, but if you just want to admire the beautiful pictures and read what some of the people around her had to say, then this is perfect!
