“There are over 54 biographies depicting the life of the late legendary actress, Elizabeth Taylor, but none of those tells her life story through the eyes of her personal belongings,” author Wayne Griffin says. By going through his amassed vast collection and looking back at the years of correspondence with the famed Hollywood star, Griffin brings forward a showcase of the most amazing, rare and unique pieces that celebrates a celebrity connection and highlights the pure brilliance of “Dearest Elizabeth - A Private Collection” (published by Xlibris AU).

This book connects readers and fans to the many places that have been embraced by the opulence of Elizabeth Taylor. It takes the reader back to 1932 and follows each year of Elizabeth’s life until her passing in 2011. The essence of this collection showcases personal items from the star that have been amassed over a 30-year period and found their final resting place in Melbourne, Australia. Details of a great bond between a celebrity and a fan were also highlighted.

“In a world where everyone is seeking fifteen minutes of fame or a selfie with their favorite celebrity or movie star, 'Dearest Elizabeth – A Private Collection' helps provide inspiration to those who seek celebrity connection,” Griffin says. Not only is this a story of celebrity fan ship, devotion of pure determination to provide a story about Elizabeth Taylor; this is also a memorabilia collection compiled with love and dedicated to fans, collectors, devoted hobbyists and lay readers alike.
