"One of the great moments in a movie classic and to mark its 50th anniversary a handsome book has been published It is as elegant to behold as the late Hepburn herself. Even the cover with silver lettering on Tiffany blue paper looks like a gift from the famous Fifth Avenue jewelry store. Breakfast at Tiffany's was a wonderful movie and this is a fine tribute to it." ~Courier Journal
"This (along with the DVD) is a perfect gift for movie buffs." ~JoyHog.com

I also would recommend Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. by Sam Wasson, but I believe Wasson writes more "text-book" like, for film buffs in general.
With the possible exception of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn was probably the most charismatic actress I can think of in cinema history. The camera loved her and she was incapable of taking a bad shot. She and George Peppard are wonderful in this film (despite the fact that Capote did not want her for this role and director Edwards did not want Peppard.) The end scene of their kissing in the rain, with Holly's cat between them, is absolutely magical and a wonderful part of motion picture history.
Another thing I love about this film is the fact that some of it was filmed on location in New York City. As someone who was ten years old when this film was made and who has lived in New York his entire life, I enjoy looking back at the Manhattan of 1961, as featured in this film. (This book has many wonderful photos shot on the streets of Manhattan as they were making this film.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this book (and the other as well.) If you love this film or are a big fan of the incomparable Audrey Hepburn, you will greatly enjoy it.
