The photos were taken by Paramount Studio stills photographer Bob Willoughby between 1953-1966. Taschen put the volume on sale Sept. 11, as part of an exhibit of the photos at its gallery in Brussels, Belgium.

At $700 each, the books sold out almost instantly.

If there’s a second printing, this tops my Xmas list!

(Luckly you can see the entire book online here.)

    Woah! $700! I would love to leaf through a copy and see all the pretty photos :)

    Ah, these are superb …. thanks for the link Tina. $700 is slightly alarming though … never mind

  3. Bere Parra says:

    Wow, the pictures are really lovely, thanks for sharing them with us! However, as much I dig Audrey, I don't think I'd spend as much on a book with photos of her, at least not now…Well one can only hope! :)

  4. Giulia says:

    I've looked at it & drooled. But $700, ha. Fortunately, I'm knee deep in AH books from bdays/holidays past. This would be great but…I guess the website & my annual AH Children's Foundation calendar will have to do.

    ciao, Tina.

    Oh how fantastic is she? In every shot. I love it

  7. kimberj says:

    She is my always and forever style icon. Thanks for sharing such soulful and intimate shots. Oh how I wish I could at least see the book :)

  8. The above fore-mentioned. says:

    The style, the class the sophistication… I checked out the site. Is it just me or does the idea of spending four hundred and fifty pounds sound slightly better than seven hundred bucks? It is still a lot of money – but a beautiful book.
