Audrey Hepburn remains one of Hollywood’s most memorable and beloved actresses. A fashion icon and symbol of femininity and poise, she was more than just a pretty face, and her enduring wisdom and musings carry across generations. In this coloring book, you’ll find her words displayed as elegantly as they were spoken through stylish art to color. Sample quotations include: · “The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” · “I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles.” · “Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.” · “Let’s face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me.” · “There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.” This clever and lovely coloring book series combines quotations from beloved wise women with beautiful black-and-white illustrations. In an attractive hold-able format with foil embellishments and paper-over-board cases, these books stand on their own as lovely art objects and impressive gifts.
