This is the 2nd book about Louis Vuitton trunks that is a must-have for anyone interested in anything LV. Including but not limited to the history of the company, all types and styles of trunks, vintage and modern design, and manufacture. The book spans the time from Pierre Vuitton in 15th Century France to the present Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesy Empire (LVMH) and Vuitton's role as a giant in current fashion design.
The illustrations in this massive tome, which weighs in at around 10 lbs, are rich and plentiful with many being in full color. Aristocracy, politicians, movie stars, and the just plain rich and famous are included here. Scenes from around the world abound throughout with LV pieces being dragged from one corner of the Earth to the other as part of a voyage, expedition, or fashion shoot. The book comes beautifully presented in a special slipcase to protect it.
This book has just been published and we were able to obtain a few copies from the publisher to offer during the holiday season.
