Publishing house Taschen has released a book by photographer Bill Willoughby containing classic imagery of iconic actress Audrey Hepburn.

The book, Bob Willoughby. Audrey Hepburn. Photographs 1953–1966, details Hepburn's progression from her acting debut to her career high of My Fair Lady in 1963.

The photographs depict the iconic actress on set, interacting with actors and directors, and in perfectly captured moments of her private life. 

Said Willoughby of meeting the actress for the first time: “She took my hand like… well a princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt mortal men’s hearts.”
