Collector's Call Web Extras: Marilyn Monroe items from the icon herself

See clothing, makeup, books, stemware, stationary and more belonging to the American icon.

Karen has been collecting Marilyn Monroe memorabilia for over thirty years and has amassed a collection of more than 2,000 items — all proudly displayed in her museum-like "Marilyn Room." Her most treasured pieces include one of Monroe's bodysuits; eyeliner and mascara once used by Monroe; a design sketch from the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes; as well as a rare book inscribed to Monroe and her playwright husband Arthur Miller. 

Let's take a closer look!

"Karen has been collecting Marilyn Monroe memorabilia for over thirty years and has amassed a collection of more than 2,000 items."

Does this "Karen" have a last name?

Security reasons? My first thought was I can imagine some nut out there wanting to steal the makeup to get Marilyn's DNA.

Embossed?
Not likely.
Most definitely engraved.

There is a larger photo of the stationary, and you can see that the letters are raised (embossed).
