"looking for coffee table books can you tell me height/width and thickness? Thanks"
I bought this book for a friend who collects Louis Vuitton vintage pieces. He and I were both thrilled with this book. It is beautiful, well done and very interesting to read. The photos are gorgeous and the book itself is a work of art. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Louis Vuitton or fine luggage....
Louis Vuitton: 100 Legendary Trunks (Hardcover)
Patrick-Louis Vuitton directs custom workshop production and handles public relations for the company founded by his great-grandfather.
Pierre Léonforte has been contributing to Maison Louis Vuitton for many years and is currently the editor in chief of the City Guide Vuitton series.
Éric Pujalet-Plaà is assistant curator of fashion and textiles at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
Trains and steamships transformed transportation in the mid-19th century and opened the world to a new breed of traveler. Louis Vuitton understood the need for more practical luggage, and strove to create products that were adaptable to all situations—and the travel trunk was born.
Authors Pierre Léonforte and Éric Pujalet-Plaà curate 100 of the finest trunks the Louis Vuitton company has produced on commission, including boxes made for movie stars from Douglas Fairbanks to Sharon Stone and couturiers from Jeanne Lanvin to Karl Lagerfeld, as well as cases designed for Ernest Hemingway, Leopold Stokowski, and Damien Hirst. Illustrated with 600 images taken from the Louis Vuitton archives and new photographs made especially for this book, this is the definitive history of personalized objects of both practicality and luxury.

This book is so cool. I originally intended to put it on my coffee table but when it arrived I liked it so much I didn't want other people's grubby hands on it (especially because the cover is cotton material) so I put it on display on a shelf and it looks really good. It's a great statement piece and on the shelf I can see it all the time and appreciate it even more. Very happy with this purchase!Read More
