“It is an excruciatingly beautiful love letter to Audrey Hepburn… I cannot recommend Audrey: The 60s highly enough.” (New York Journal of Books)
Audrey Hepburn, 60s icon.
Audrey Hepburn charmed audiences in the 1950s as a new type of cinema personality—gamine, doe-eyed, and refreshingly casual. By the 1960s she had transformed into a trendsetting sophisticate and achieved unrivaled careers as an actress, model, movie star, and champion for underprivileged children worldwide. Curator and photographic preservationist David Wills has amassed one of the world's largest private collections of original Audrey Hepburn photographs. Now, in Audrey: The 60s, he has gathered spectacular museum-quality work from her key photographers—Richard Avedon, Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, William Klein, Terry O'Neill, Howell Conant, Bob Willoughby, Pierluigi Pratulon, Bud Fraker, and many others—to create this stunning portfolio of images that pays homage to the most beloved and enduring style icon of the “decade of change.”
Among the highlights:
- Rare and classic images digitally restored from their original negatives and transparencies.
- Never-before-seen publicity photos and candids from the sets of Breakfast at Tiffany's, Charade, My Fair Lady, How to Steal a Million, and Two for the Road.
- Unpublished outtakes and rarely seen images from Vogue fashion sessions, some not published since their original appearance.
- Previously unpublished photos by Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, William Klein, Howell Conant, Bob Willoughby, Pierluigi Pratulon, and many others.
Pairing more than two hundred first-generation photos with reflections and original quotes from friends, photographers, designers, work associates, and Audrey herself, Audrey: The 60s is an unforgettable showcase of the actress's timeless beauty and extraordinarily influential style.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

When Audrey died, I was frankly surprised that she meant so much to so many and since then, her life has been the subject of numerous biographies, style and photo books, tributes, short stories, calendars, etc. Most cultural icons who die lived lives of addiction and excess. Think Elvis, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, and they died relatively young. Audrey was in her 60s, and decades beyond the glory years as a romantic screen ingenue, Except for the occasional small film appearance, Audrey was pretty much retired. She had become more famous as an international UN Embassador traveling worldwide to champion the cause of starving children. Yet she continued to fascinate, and her films on VHS and later on DVD continued to extend her legend. Her extraordinary timeless fashion appeal never went out of style--and is still emulated today. I've managed to accumulate a lot of books dedicated to Audrey's life and work, which now numbers over 20 volumes. Naturally, I had to have AUDREY: The 60s.
Beginning with BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, the book follows Audrey's ascent to superstardom through her final eight films of the decade, made in six short years. David Wills, a photo curator, editor and photographic preservationist, has gathered many new and familiar Hepburn images from her films, and from the Vogue fashion sessions she participated in. Richard Avedon, Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, and many other great photographers capture that unique Audrey quality. Friends, colleagues, designers and others provide their own perspective on the Audrey they knew, and Audrey is also quoted from interviews she gave during this period. The iconic Givenchy fashion that helped cement her reputation, shares space here in the sumptuous period costumes of MY FAIR LADY and the ultra-modern swinging 60s costumes she wore in TWO FOR THE ROAD.
This beautiful book, designed by Stephen Schmidt, is a must for Audrey collectors. Bound in Tiffany-blue buckram, and surrounded by a jacket photo of Audrey during a fashion shoot on the front and a classic BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S little black dress on the back, AUDREY; The 60 is the most stylish collection of Audrey photos we've had thus far.
But what I do love is the way this book assembled the content in a loving manner. It's structured around her 60's films, providing a mix of stills and photos presented in full page in an oversized book. There's a mix of her own quotes, movie lines, and quotes about her that accent the photos.
There's little text, so this is more of a way to browse the content and remember the movies in a pleasant manner, and it feels like flipping through memories rather than reading a book.
One thing that puts this book over the top - the was a photo of Audrey in Two for the Road that I've only seen once, in an issue of Premier magazine, that I've never been able to find again. This book had it, and I'm really grateful for that. I didn't think I was ever going to find that particular one again, and now I've finally got a copy for my collection.
Thanks for producing such a fantastic book. I sure hope the author prepares another one that covers the 50's as well.
