I think as an artist and art collector of over 45 years this is aesthetically pleasing and romantic nude photo art.

STORED SINCE NEW - PRINTER'S PROOF/SAMPLE SHEET - Of the production that was about to be released. This is the real deal apx 62-65 years old and in mint condition.

Stored since new when I bought the estate of a pinup art calendar employee. It was put away and stored since new along with many other proofs and sample sets. I have had it for years and have faithfully preserved it as well. It has not been framed or seen the light of day. It was never framed.

Nude Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jean Baker) posed for such a calendar and was published first by this very same company first and offered in these same portfolio (please see my other listings for this one) In the 1940's and she was paid $50, needing the extra money as a struggling actress. Many of the models and actresses did this. I have interviewed in my studio a co worker, model and Tome Kelly's assistant who was working there on the day of the Norma Jean "Marilyn" photo shoot.

Because it is near mint condition, I can NOT accept refunds without a serious restock fee of 20% or more if damaged, handled or soiled on return... Please understand any handling at all will diminish it's value. I will ship it fully insured, and pack it carefully. Shipped UPS or Fed/Ex. Professionally packed.
