Knit your own Holly Golightly!

No Comments 06 December 2007

By now it’s a pretty well-established fact that I love knitting and keep trying to force it on everyone else. Consider it one of my charms. 🙂 While going through my morning Audrey news search, I found a new knitting book called Knitted Icons: 25 Celebrity Doll Patterns, a crazy cool book that has patterns to make 25 of the most recognizable celebrities, all in vaguely voodoo doll-type form! You can see Audrey Hepburn as the instantly recognizable Holly Golightly to the left for proof that this is, in fact, a really cool book.

Audrey Hepburn and Tiffany & Co.

No Comments 17 February 2007

I was out in a familiar neighborhood today and had some time to kill, so I stopped in a tiny bookstore to browse in. As I passed the art and photography books I noticed The Audrey Hepburn Treasures prominently displayed, which made me smile. On the next shelf over, however, were two Tiffany books worth looking over.

The first, Tiffany Pearls, has been mentioned here before, and showcases Tiffany’s many masterpieces involving pearls. Audrey, as Holly Golightly, is featured on the front cover and on the inside of the dust jacket. I had never looked over the book in person, and now that I have I must say that you’d either have to be an obsessive Audrey Hepburn collector or just really like pearls to buy this book. Audrey herself is hardly mentioned despite her covergirl appeal, and the pictures in the book are nothing we haven’t seen before. It is a beautiful book to look over, though. (For the record, the pearl strands Audrey is wearing in the film are in fact imitation pearls used many times by Paramount Studios.)

The Audrey Hepburn Treasures

No Comments 03 January 2007

While Audrey news is still slow going, I did find an article reviewing The Audrey Hepburn Treasures that was very different from the rest. I also wanted to share it because it expresses some of the same concerns a lot of Audrey fans had expressed themselves: how would she feel about having millions of people see her personal belongings? The article starts off by saying that going through Treasures is rather like going through someone’s desk drawers after they’ve died, and you feel guilty and strange doing it. But the author of the article justifies the release of Treasures by pointing out that it was done with Sean’s specific consent (his forward in the book further assuages guilt), and that sales of this book will help the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund. It also mentions Sean’s own book, Elegant Spirit, as a further okay to this intimate peek at the private Audrey Hepburn.

So I wasn’t able to find an Audrey calendar the other day. And on Amazon all calendars “ship in 4-6 weeks.” By then January will be over! But while I couldn’t find any Audrey calendars, I did stumble across some other excellent calendars you might be interested in.
