I bought it a few weeks ago. Lovely book, very very informative regarding the history of Louis Vuitton the person, the Vuitton family and the company. Beautiful pictures too.

it's a heavy sucker, but I think it's beautiful, and a great coffee table/collector's item...at first I wasn't too thrilled about the pictures (or lack thereof) but I realize now that the book is meant to be more about the beginnings of Louis Vuitton (the person and the bags).

I have it and I really like it! it looks good on the coffee table but and it tells you so much about Louis that I love even more to spend my hard earned money on his products! He and his familiy were such fighters with visions for that time. IMO it's worth every penny!

Yes! I got it for Christmas and it's a great investment. There's so much history in there that the true LV lover can really appreciate. I haven't even gotten all the way through it yet. :smile:

Kathy you definately should have had the book by now :evil: . They should at least give you a credit of some kind. You've been very patient.

I emailed them right after I posted here. I will wait to hear from them and if I can't get it there, I may get it from somewhere else instead (or put the $ towards another LV :P).

Has anyone received their book from buy.com? I ordered it way back then and have gotten about 5 updates about how they haven't gotten it in stock yet and they're working hard, blah blah. I think I'm about to cancel my order!
