The Archives is pleased to announce our latest promotion: The Marilyn Monroe 'A Piece of Me' Challenge. Buy a total of six (6) prints from our Portraits of an Era collection, and receive a Marilyn Monroe limited edition print valued at $2,300 from our First Portfolio collection as our gift to you!
Here is how it works: Portraits of an Era prints regularly retail for $750 each. Starting in March, we will be periodically holding 36-hour sales. At least once a month, during a 36-hour window, we will be offering Portraits of an Era prints for $187.50, that's 75% off! If you purchase your discounted print between 12 and 2 pm in your time zone, you will receive a piece of 'Marilyn Monroe is Winsome in White Fur' limited edition print from our First Portfolio collection. Every time you buy an additional Portraits of an Era print from 12 to 2 pm during any future 36-hour sales, you will receive another piece from the White Fur print. When you have bought your sixth Portraits of an Era print, you will receive a 21x21, White Fur limited edition print.
By the end of the promotion, 'A Piece of Me' members will have received more than $6,800 in limited edition prints for a total of $1,125. These sales will be announced several days in advance via our blog, Facebook and Twitter, so make sure to follow us if you aren't already.
Enrollment in The Marilyn Monroe 'A Piece of Me' Challenge is easy. Simply buy any Portraits of an Era print between 12 to 2 pm in your time zone during one of our special 36-hour sales and you will automatically receive a piece of your White Fur print. Shipping is not included in the sale price. Marilyn Monroe Pieces of Me Challenge offer only valid with purchases of prints from the Portraits of an Era collection. The six prints must be purchased within six (6) months of the first print purchase in order to be eligible to receive the free First Portfolio print. The Archives reserves the right to switch the free print to another Marilyn Monroe print in the First Portfolio if White Fur print sells out.
The Portraits of an Era edition first debuted as an exhibition of newly restored photographs by Milton H. Greene. It was launched in major U.S. cities in 2001, and then traveled to London, Melbourne, Tokyo, and Sydney. In October 2015, the Portraits of an Era collection will be discontinued. The 'A Piece of Me' Challenge is the last chance for collectors to purchase Portraits of an Era at a discounted price.
The First Portfolio edition was the first set of images from Milton H. Greene’s vast photographic collection to be restored. This exclusive edition includes 19 images selected by The Archives to be digitally remastered and made available as fine art, limited-edition prints. Portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Laughton, and Diahann Carroll were presented here for the first time.
