This is the first definitive, retrospective photo book published on a Hollywood icon. It is lavishly illustrated chronicle of a unique and glamorous life. An illustrated celebration of Grace Kelly, one of Hollywoods brightest stars, is already long overdue. This book will also coincide with two significant anniversaries: 2006 sees 50 years since she married Prince Rainier and 2007 is the 25th anniversary of her death. The book will include a detailed biography and over 160 pictures and contact sheets, many of which are reproduced for the first time. Hand-written documents and famous quotes on and from Grace Kelly complement impressive iconographic research (family pictures, national archives, private collections, press agencies, newspapers). Also included are images and contact sheets from prestigious photographers, all of which give us a highly individual portrait of a cinematic legend.
