Showcased are the original illustrations made by Schuiten at the height of the pandemic for the first and only entry of the Louis Vuitton Travel Book to explore the reaches of outer space. “I wanted to be a bit like an explorer that tries to find himself, that maps things as he discovers them. I wanted to be a bit endangered,” says Schuiten.
