The Louis Vuitton "Travel Book" collection is an invitation to real and virtual voyages enriched by intellectual stimulation and poignant moments.
In its pages the illustrations of renowned artists or promising young talents tell the stories of the cities or countries they have visited, depicting the varied architecture, maybe the special light of their chosen topic whilst recording the passing days and lives of its people.
Heirs of the Louis Vuitton "Carnets de Voyage" collection which, for nearly twelve years, captured the urban adventures of a few illustrators and watercolorists, these "Travel Books" offer a new contemporary vision of travel, exploring from the remote wilderness to the cities that never sleep. This fresh approach dares to examine different cultures through the eyes of artists unfamiliar with them. Each artist confronts this unfamiliar place with a viewpoint sharpened by the surprise of the unknown or stimulated by the pleasure of discovery. This vision of a place as a blank, unlined page inspires incisive commentaries that may be narrative, affectionate, satirical or picturesque.
Going beyond the pictorial vocation of these travel journals, the collection highlights the rich aesthetic horizons of today's art. The creative worlds on show are highly diverse: during their travels these artists, from various corners of the world, were free to choose their mode of expression and communicate their views of other places through drawing, painting, collage, comtemporary art, illustration, cartoons or manga. Some of the original works born of these journeys, whether figurative or more allusive, have been acquired by Louis Vuitton and will join the collection of contemporsary art being put together by the company, enriching it with the diversity of the viewpoints represented.(LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK)
