French brand Louis Vuitton never strays far from its beginnings as a pioneer of traveling in luxury. The brand has released a contemporary travel book collection highlighting different cities and featuring the work of artists from that city.

Each book is a city guide depicted through drawings and illustrations by the chosen artists. The collection invites readers to participate in a unique journey as seen through the artists’ eyes.
