Hepburn (Taschen Movie Icons)

Her beauty has proved timeless—should we be surprised? Equally graceful whether moving or standing still, blessed with a balletic poise, luminous dark eyes, and an exquisite profile a queen might envy, Audrey Hepburn would no doubt have become famous in her youth even if the movies hadn’t found her—simply because no self-respecting camera could resist her.

A photographic celebration of one of the most distinctive, iconic women within film!

This beautiful book has to be my favorite photographic tribute to the legendary actress Audrey Hepburn, whose singular smile and stand-out features are truly memorable. This is what I would like to call a ‘Coffee Table book’ and is something that you can easily slip into your handbag, read on the train or makes an ideal gift for that glamorous friend who has it all! Ardent fans of Audrey will be enchanted and ca

I love love love Audrey!

A nicely done pictorial history of Audrey Hepburn and her movies. The book consists of a quick introduction highlighting Hepburn's importance, followed by 150 pictures of movie stills, marketing portraits, and behind the scenes shots of her on movie sets. Great photographs and a nice summary of her life and movie credits.

I really like this little book. It's filled with wonderful pictures, both of her movies and her personal life as well as posed shots. Under each picture is a short description, so no real chapters per say. Just lots of beautiful images of Audrey. And really, isn't that the best thing about such a wonderful actress?

The writing was okay. The visual design was fabulous. All in all, it will make a great coffee table book.

And I loved that it was written in English, German, and French. NOTHING is more charming than reading about Audrey Hepburn in French.

Amazing, amazing photos! From the sets, conversation with director, from the movies. You'll fall in love with Audrey even if you don't know who she is. And for those of you who love her anyway, well what are you waiting for?
