Format: Hardcover
ABSOLTELY STUNNING - That's how you sum up this book in which a great deal of love and care was given by the authors. In this case Audrey Hepburn's long time companion Rob Wolders, and her two sons Sean and Luca together went through thousands upon thousands of photographs of the former star. They settled on 100 of them that told a story, and was unique.

Each one of them shows Audrey as the unique human being that she was. Over a 40 year period you see the movie star, the humanitarian, and the mother. In her own words she lived a fairy tale existence. There's an intensity here that is way beyond that portrayed on the screen.

The greatest photographers in the world for a period of two generations tried to capture the star in all her different moods. The emotions, the feelings, it's all here, many of which are in black and white, but others in glorious colors. Her son Luca is an accomplished graphic artist, and it shows in the images selection. Luca was concerned that each picture must by itself tell a story, her story, and they certainly do.

A Few Examples

Look at the first color photograph on page 67. The face is devastating. It takes your breath away. It is from the 1965 movie, "How to Steal a Million." On page 136 you have what is called a makeup face. Whenever a movie is done, they do the makeup on the star, and then take the best picture they can. In this case the movie was Sabrina, and the picture is magnificent. You must see it to believe it.

CONCLUSION:

You open this book and the inside cover is a luscious pink, and the next page, and the next page. It was her favorite color. You open to the back and there is a waxed envelope. In the envelope is a beautiful picture of the star. It is a stand alone.

Format: Hardcover
This graceful coffee table book does justice to Audrey Hepburn. The photographs were chosen by her 2 sons and her partner, each is a full page, some in black and white, some in colour. They give the name of the photographer and the year, but are not in chronological order.

It would have been interesting to see her growth and maturation if they would have put them in chronological order and despite some opinions to the contrary about letting photographs speak for themselves; I would prefer to have information concerning something about the photos. This is done at the end of the book, but leads to much page turning back and forth and is distracting if you do want this information.
There is a forward by Audrey's son Sean and some information at the end about the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund. There are also bios on the authors. The book is done well, good printing and has a ribbon for place keeping.
Those who are fans of Audrey Hepburn would indeed enjoy this book.

At first I thought 'not another Audrey book' but then I picked this up and began to thumb through it and soon it was tucked under my arm to be purchased and added to my extensive Hepburn collection. If this is your first Audrey book you will be VERY pleased with it, even if,like me, you have nearly every book already out there you will find enough here that is fresh to justify its aquisition. Buy with confidence! A good value.

Audrey 100 contains some stunning and beautifully laid out photographs of Audrey throughout her life and career. Among them are splendid candids and intimate images by leading photographers, including Leo Fuchs' [...] whose portrait of Audrey is the autograph print included in the book for framing. For some other images of Audrey by Leo Fuchs, please see the upcoming book Special Photographer at Leo Fuchs: Special Photographer from the Golden Age of Hollywood

I gave this book to my wife as a Christmas present. She loved it, loved it, loved it. I did good.
For anyone interested in fashion and a woman who wore it well, don't miss it.

Gorgeous photos. I do wish some of the photos had easy to find descriptions, but that's mostly a preference thing.
Gave this as a gift to my mom and she was very happy.
