"The Audrey Hepburn Treasures" is a unique and a great tribute to a special lady. This book is truly a treasure of special things that were part of Audrey Hepburn's life. For example, included are sketches made by Audrey , the letter that appointed Audrey as the official ambassador to Unicef, a copy of the Unicef passport, and a copy of a letter from Cary Grant written in 1982. This is just a brief sampling of what is included in "The Audrey Hepburn Treasures." Bookmans the bookseller from Tucson AZ did a great job packaging the book. However, the book took 17 days to arrive at my house. I recommend that in the future when I order an oversized book like "Treasures", I will spend the extra money and send the book special handling.

The artifacts, photos and text is what one would expect about a Miss Hepburn. Very well put together and a page turn to view family pictures, and a look into a private life made public by the entertainment industry. The book is definitely worth purchasing for yourself or a friend.

They say God is in the details and this beautifully detailed book on Audrey Hepburn's life is the best I've ever seen or read about her. The anticipation you feel turning each page to uncover one more treasure about her you had never seen or read before is unsurpassed. Sit down and relax and get lost in the wonderful enchanting world of Audrey Hepburn.
