100 Legendary Trunks by Louis Vuitton

This exceptional book showcases the most beautiful trunk creations of Louis Vuitton through more than eight hundred photographs over the House's one hundred and sixty-six year history.

Many incredible pieces are featured here, along with the equally incredible stories of their creation.

In the same format as its earlier publish, "The Birth of Modern Luxury" (540 pages, 600 illustrations) comes Louis Vuitton: The History of the Travel Trunk. This book provides the definitive story of the creation of their legendary travel luggage.

In the middle of the nineteenth century, trains and steam ships transformed transportation and opened the world to a new breed of travellers. Louis Vuitton understood the need for more practical luggage and strove to create products that were adaptable to all situations.

Authors Pierre-Leon Forte and Florence Muller explore all aspects of this story from Louis Vuitton's apprenticeship in traditional box making to the revolution of the stackable flat-top trunk; from the development of the tumbler lock to the creation of the LV monogram canvas.

It also includes examples of devoted customers such as Queen Elizabeth II and explorer Pierre S De Brazza. Illustrated with more than eight hundred images taken from the Vuitton archives, this book will be the definitive volume on one man and his sons' dedication to creating objects of luxury and practicality.

Available for purchase at Louis Vuitton stores worldwide, major bookstores or ordered online.
