Recommends it for: fans of Audrey Hepburn, people who love beautiful coffee table books
Beautiful book! Anyone who is a fan of Audrey Hepburn should own this book. My daughter gave it to me for Christmas and I love it. Not only is it a beautiful story of Audrey Hepburn, it's full of mementos of hers like letters, tickets, drawings, invitations, you name it. This woman is not only the epitome of style and grace, she was also a great philanthropist. We could all learn so much from her, men as well as women.

I loved this. It is a wonderful look into the life of not the icon, but I think, the woman. The idea of having those pouches (for lack of a better word), which hold prints of photographs, letters and so forth, makes the book personal. It is like a treasure and I have to say, I was teary eyed at the end.

So if you like Audrey Hepburn: buy it. :-)

Who could ask for more? A beautiful woman. Learning of her dreams and aspirations and who she became was thrilling, interactive, and engaging. I would recommend this not to fans, but to Hepburn devotees.

AUDREY HEPBURN TREASURES is one of the most unique coffee table books I've ever seen filled not just with pictures on pages but scanned replicas of letters, call sheets, business cards, postcards, telegrams and much more. Every chapter has at least one section with waxed paper-like envelopes containing these true treasures thrusting me back to an era long ago. I felt as though I were leafing through her actual scrapbooks.

This masterpiece is a must for any Audrey fan. You'll want to come

For those of you who don't know, Audrey Hepburn is my current fixation. I have seen almost all of her films, which you should all watch, and this is the second biography I have read about her. This one is really cool because inside it has replicas of some of her things such as: scripts with her notes, programs she signed, family Christmas cards, etc., This is just a really fun book to read. She lived a great life.

I have three heros- Carol Burnette, my mom and Audrey Hepburn. I love this book about the last of these, the immortal Audrey. Her talent, style and charm are so unique and so clearly shown in these pages. The momentos of her life (including a letter from CARY GRANT!!!) make her so accesible- she was a real person like the rest of us! I highly reccomend this book- be prepared to pour over it for hours!

Recommends it for: EVERYONE!!
This is a fabulous book on Audrey Hepburn! It tells her life story from when she grew up in Europe during the war to her two husbands and her fabulous fashion. I learned sooo much about Audrey that I hadn't known before (it's kind of a hobby of mine to read about Audrey and Grace Kelly). Also, there are pullouts in the book. There are copies of Hepburn family Christmas cards, pictures of Grace when she was a dancer, and pics of her family in Europe. It's a truly amazing book.

What a fun book! I was overjoyed to discover that my local library had a copy of this treasure. Not only is this an informative biography of the lovely Audrey Hepburn, it also contains little velum sleeves filled with interesting mementos from her life. The pictures were fantastic and I enjoyed reading over the reproductions of letters, playbills, ticket stubs and other little tokens. I adore Audrey Hepburn! She is very different from the celebrities we constantly hear about now, in that she nev ...more

This is a coffee table book really, but out of all the Audrey Hepburn books out there, it is quite original and definately worth a read for any fan.

It is brief in regards to details, and it gets through her life really quickly. If you're wanting depth, you can't go wrong with Paris' biography. However, the special thing about this book is all the pockets, like a scrapbook or a box of treasures. And in these you will find replicas of family photos, drawings, letters to and from Audrey, contracts,

A wonderful book about a truly remarkable woman. It tracks Hepburn's life from beginning to end and provides a few replica trinkets along the way, such as a letter from an admiring fan, dated May 1950.

A gift from my dearest doll, aj. This book keeps you busy for hours, with ingenious glassine envelope pages that include copies of actual letters, scripts, notes, photos, etc from Audrey's archives. The name says it all - this is a treasure for all fans.

Awesome!

I don't hide the fact that I own no less than three books on Audrey Hepburn, but this is by far my favorite. It's an awesome coffee-table book, with all the reproductions from Audrey's life that make it so much more special.

This book really is a treasure. The text, the photos, the reproductions of mementos included throughout, are all wonderful. If you love Audrey Hepburn, read this book and you'll love her even more. If you don't yet love Audrey Hepburn, read this book and you will.

A delicious sight for those interested in a relatively modest, successful and talented actress that was both an inspiration and a hero to those around her.

Yes, she's not just overrated through and through by everyone and everything. Haha!

I wish this book went into more detail. But the little letters and keepsakes in it are really neat. I loved the letter from Cary Grant!
