LV Adds Paris & Africa to its Travel Book Collection

Picture books come no more sophisticated than those in the Louis Vuitton Travel Book Collection, which enlists famous artists for illustrative storytelling about the world’s most spectacular destinations. In the latest two limited-edition volumes, graphic novelist Brecht Evens shows Paris through mixed-medium city scenes tinged with the psychedelic, and Liu Xiaodong explores South Africa through elegant paintings of landscape, natural and social both. They’re equally good on coffee tables as conversation pieces, or on nightstands for an escapist bedtime story.
