The « Voyages extraordinaires » by Louis Vuitton

Posted on

 

We received a very precious book a few days ago. It was delicately wrapped in tissue paper and protected by an orange box stamped Louis Vuitton, a little gem in which the Vuitton house unveils its travel-themed archives. There are posters and old photographs, portraits of adventurers, as well as different modes of transport since the middle of the 19th century…

The timeless monogram has also traveled ; Louis Vuitton’s accessories have been successfully adapted through the ages, from hat trunks, bed trunks, cupboard trunks and other car trunks, to lighter and more practical but still elegant suitcases.

The Voyages extraordinaires by Louis Vuitton, Francisca Mattéoli, éd Xavier Barral.

For Modèle Déposé, this precious work constitutes a terrific research tool for our librarians, as it holds old posters, sketches, logos and typography…

Thanks to Andrea, our graphic designer, who made this beautiful stop motion.
