Audrey The 60s book by David Wills

Fans of iconic ’60s imagery will no doubt fancy thumbing through Audrey The 60s by David Wills, which is published by Aurum Press in October.

Although she first gained prominence in the 1950s, Hepburn is really made her mark in the 1960s as a style icon. Curator and archivist David Wills has amassed one of the world’s largest private collections of original Audrey Hepburn photography, which is now showcased in this book.

Not only that, the work from key photographers of the day has been digitally restored from original negatives and transparencies for even sharper shots.

Among the highlights are never-before-seen on-set photography from the likers of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Charade, My Fair Lady, How to Steal a Million and Two for the Road, along with outtakes and rare images from fashion shoots, some not seen since their original appearance in Vogue. There are also previously unpublished shots by photographers Bert Stern, Cecil Beaton, Douglas Kirkland, William Klein, Howell Conant, Bob Willoughby, Pierluigi Praturlon and many others.

Over 200 images over the 288 pages, along with words from friends, photographers, designers, collaborators and Hepburn herself. If you fancy it, the book is up for pre-order now at a discounted £16.77.
