    1. I've had my eye on this book for more than two years now. I finally bought it in November 2010, it cost about 38$. Two weeks later the price had gone up to more than $100. I'm a big fan of Yul Brynner, and of some of his favorite subjects (Ingrid Bergman, Deborah Kerr). Clearly, Yul Brynner had the eye for beauty and composition--truly an artist's artist.

    2. I don't think one can go wrong flipping through some gorgeous photography (mostly b/w) from the perspective of a cool guy like Yul Brynner.Thanks to his daughter for publishing.My favorite is a beautiful photo of Deborah Kerr waiting and ready to begin the waltz scene from The King and I.
