    Description

    A 'Marilyn Monroe Pin-Ups' Magazine, 1953. Published by the Maco Magazine Corporation to cash in on the star's white hot streak of popularity in 1953, featuring 15 pages of unusual color-tinted and black and white cheesecake images of Marilyn, many of which have never been seen elsewhere, each page displays text about her, though some of it is wrong ("1929" as her birth year, "5'4" as her height, "she doesn't drink," etc.). (Please note there is slight wrinkling on the front and back covers due to age but the inside images are still in decent condition.)
    11" x 8"

    There were two different versions of this magazine released in 1953 because the first (which this one is) displayed an image of MM deemed too risqué as she was sans brassiere! The later versions removed the 'offensive' photo.
