A special thank you to Wiley at godaddy.com; your patience and kindness was very much appreciated. And a very BIG thank you to everyone who has supported this blog throughout the years. Whether you were a fan from the very beginning or merely stumbled upon my blog today, I’m truly thankful to each and every one of you! Not only does Rare Audrey Hepburn have it’s own custom domain name but it now has it’s very own email address, too! If you ever need to contact me you can do so at email@example.com.
If you’re feeling generous (and I hope you are) buying something on my site through one of my Amazon links would be extremely welcomed. Purchasing a .com address is rather costly and every bit helps! Thank you again, Audrey fans. You truly are the best!

my-absurd-obsessions asked: I love Audrey Hepburn so much and I have for years but I've never gotten around to reading any of her books. I was wondering If you knew what one would be best to start with, maybe one by Luca or Sean? I love your tumblr and I'm so glad I found it. :)
I’d definitely suggest starting with Sean Hepburn Ferrer’s book, Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit. (UK link). It’s the most intimate biography of Audrey and a wonderful place to begin. It’s also filled with lovely pictures of Audrey.
After that I’d recommend any of these three biographies:

space-alien-girl asked: Do you also know a lot about Audrey Hepburn and her life, as well as collecting photographs of her?
Sure! I don’t know if I would declare myself an expert but I have read many biographies about the actress and have spent an absurd amount of time watching documentaries and interviews with and about Audrey. Is there anything in particular you’d like to know about her? I’m always happy to be of service, especially to fellow Audrey fans. :)
