In its pages, the illustrations of renowned artists and promising young talents tell the stories of the cities and countries they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people 1).

For each new title, a numbered and signed limited edition is available in select Louis Vuitton stores.

In June 2020 François Schuiten announced that he spend most of his time in confinement due to Covid-19 on making images for his book in this collection. The destination is Mars.

Schuiten: “Pour la première fois, ce sera dans une ville qui n'existe pas. Je voyage sur Mars, c'est très minéral, je suis entouré de bouquins sur Mars. C'est une immersion très rigoureuse au niveau des lumières, du climat… Il y aura 120 dessins en couleurs, j'en ai réalisé 402).
