Audrey A Roma in book form

The last big news item on Audrey Hepburn was an exhibit in Italy showcasing Audrey's life in Rome. The exhibit was sadly short-lived, yet still managed to raise nearly $100,000 for UNICEF! If you couldn't make it out to Rome to visit the exhibit, but desperately wanted to see the displays of Audrey's clothes, personal belongings, and candid photographs, never fear: a special book curated by her son Luca Dotti has been released with 192 pages of text and pictures for your enjoyment.

If you are in Europe, you can order the book through Amazon's Italian page here, or try your luck at local bookstores, as they have been spotted out and about. If you are in the U.S., the book is harder to find, but not impossible. A few sellers on Amazon have copies at around $30 (plus shipping), and would cost you near the same amount to order a copy from overseas and have it shipped to you. The best part is that all royalties from the sales go directly to the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund.

In an extra bit of news: if you are on Twitter, so am I! You can now get all your Audrey news in 140 characters or less. See you there.
