Louis Vuitton was a company that was created thinking about travelling. The passion for travelling runs in the veins of his family – Gaston-Louis Vuitton, grandson of the company’s founder, collected newspaper articles about trunks and luggage and created a whole archive of stories about stolen, bloodstained, lost and found trunks. These stories are now braught to life by French writers and collected in a book called The Trunk. But for the travellers that want to create their own stories, Louis Vuitton offers a selection of travel journals and books.
For Travel Book, the French luxury house invited four artists from four different countries to visit cities that are foreign to them. The French illustrator Jean-Philippe Delhomme walked the streets of New York. The American artist Daniel Arsham discovered Easter Island. The Japanese illustrator Natsko Seki traveled to London. And Cheri Samba, a creative from Congo, visited Paris.
