More Marilyn!

Judging from the trailer, it looks like Marilyn Monroe is getting the Notting Hill treatment in the new movie, My Week With Marilyn.

Oh yeah, and check out the new flip-throughable MM book by photographer Bert Stern (and Norman Mailer) from Taschen!

Taschen Presents…

Taschen, the world’s leading publisher of high quality art/design/film books (and yes, there’s plenty of sexy titles, too!), has a whole slate of terrific tomés for serious movie buffs, including special editions on Audrey Hepburn, Taxi Driver, Some Like It Hot, and The Godfather Family Album.

What’s also cool about their website besides the literary eye candy — is that they feature a number of author videos and flip-through pages of their latest releases, in case you can’t afford the $700 Audrey Hepburn photo book!

Bollywood Babylon

I was at the LA Times Festival of Books this weekend and came across this little gem in the Taschen booth.

This poster book features lots of wonderful, colorful hand-painted posters and original art from Bollywood’s past motion picture history, focusing mainly on early 20th Century productions — so unfortunately, that probably means no Aishwariya Rai!
