Joining the ranks of Paris, New York, Easter Island and London, Louis Vuitton celebrates the launch of the Venice and Vietnam travel books.
The collection is an invitation to real and virtual voyages, enriched by intellectual stimulation and poignant moments. In its pages, the illustrations of renowned artists and promising young talents tell the stories of the cities and countries they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people.
Each artist confronts an unfamiliar place with a viewpoint sharpened by the surprise of the unknown or stimulated by the pleasure of rediscovery. Going beyond the pictorial vocation of these travel journals, the collection highlights the rich aesthetic horizons of today’s art.
