Gorgeous. Elegant. Dressed in a fashionable pastiche jacket. Scott Brizel's photographic collection of Audrey Hepburn can be described the way its subject has always been described. I've always felt that Audrey Hepburn continues to be one of the most iconic figures in popular culture, seeing her face on t-shirts, on the walls of clubs and bars, and even in subway terminals. Brizel's book supports my claim with photos from pictorials, magazine covers, film posters and film stills from countries all over the world, including Italy, Japan, France, Russia, Israel, and Uruguay. -- Geo Ong

— From February 2010
