Book: Before Marilyn

Before Marilyn Monroe became known as THE blonde bombshell of the 1950's she was gracing the pages of magazines, advertisements, and calendar across the world as Norma Jeane. She was discovered in a factory during the war and luckily for us David Conover saw that magic in her eyes.

Walking into Barnes and Noble and seeing a new Marilyn Monroe book sitting on the shelves is always an exciting day for me! Especially if I had no idea the book was coming out. This is a beautiful boo full of photos and information about Marilyn Monroe's beginnings. You learn about her time at The Blue Book Modeling Agency, and information behind her modeling gigs. Astrid Franse and Michelle Morgan did a wonderful job putting this book together. It is quite and amazing read! You can find it online here.
