a little louis.

I have to say, I love it when Amazon send me a little e-mail recommendation every now and again based on recent purchases.  Yesterday, I received the hot tip to check out Louis Vuitton's '100 Legendary Trunks'...  I think I will be taking their advice and ordering one stat!

“Show me your luggage and I’ll tell you who you are.”
—Louis Vuitton advertising slogan, 1921

"So here we are. It was bound to happen. After making so many trunks, including some to carry books, here is our first book about trunks. One hundred trunks. Trunks that are extraordinary in every way, for a hundred reasons, as much for what they carried as for the work, the care, the inventiveness, and the ingenuity required to make them. One hundred trunks. No easy task, obviously […] Of course they can no longer travel but their story in transit for a time, takes another turn. This book brings them all back to safe harbor."
—Foreword by Patrick-Louis Vuitton [extract]
