Never before seen photos compiled from personal collections and family archives "Cool Then, Cool Now" goes behind-the-scenes to capture the spirit and life of one of the most unique, and by far coolest entertainers, Dean Martin.

This one-of-a-kind collection showcases Dean as The Entertainer, The Family Man, The Sportsman, The Man-About-Town, and The Movie Star providing a behind-the-scenes look of the legendary Dean Martin in the studio, on stage, and from sets of films including The Caddy (1953), Artists and Models (1955), Rio Bravo (1959), Oceans 11 (1960), Airport (1970) and many more. Photos included, from personal collections and family archives, are highlighted by pictures of Dean with many of his closest friends.

The book features heartfelt tributes from some of the people that knew him best including; comedian and co-star Jerry Lewis, Academy Award winning actress and co-star Shirley MacLaine, and legendary golfer Arnold Palmer, as well as admirer and global star Robbie Williams, and others.

"I was fortunate to work with Dean from the very start, he was always the consummate professional, instantaneous and funny," said Lewis. "He was magic to be around and had the exquisite ability to know what was funny." Recalled MacLaine, "Dean was the man-about-town that everyone wanted to spend time with. He was kind, funnier than anyone else, and adorable in all ways."

Also, on the same date, Capitol/EMI will release two collections of Dean Martin's music. A new title, Classic Dino: The Best Of Dean Martin features 14 classic tracks, and six standout recordings have been added to the popular, Platinum-certified Dino: The Essential Dean Martin for an expanded 36-track 2CD and digital collection of Martin's top hits.

A famed star of the silver screen, television icon, Grammy Award-winning singing sensation and member of the renowned "Rat Pack," Dean Martin's show business legacy is legendary. His musical career features such classics as "Ain't That A Kick In The Head," "That's Amore," "Mambo Italiano," "Everybody Loves Somebody," "Sway," "Volare," and more, releasing dozens of album recordings over his lifetime.
