A History of Hermes - A Japanese Manga/Comic Book

  1. Tosca, Grand Fonds - this thread is dedicated to the two of you.

    I read the entire comic book yesterday night. It's basically a history of hermes. The author interviewed Dumas (current CEO) during his business trips to Japan for an accurate portrail. This book begins with the origin of Hermes, debut of various product ranges, difficulties through the war, etc.

    Here's a selection from the book.
