  1. Hi everyone! I've been surfing the LV website and I think I'm pretty content with my current handbag and SLG collection. I decided to venture into the Fine Books section and have been hooked on a few items.

    I will definitely be picking up the Louis Vuitton City Bags: A Natural History Book but is a bit uncertain on the following items. Are these worth it?

    - Louis Vuitton: 100 Legendary Trunks
    - Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion, and Architecture
    - Louis Vuitton, the Birth of Modern Luxury

    Also, I see these are available on Amazon for less than what is advertised on the LV website. Is this reliable? Why is there a difference in price?

    All suggestions are welcome, thank you!
     
  2. LV books from the store are usually their exclusive edition - different cover, packaging, etc. there is a thread in the clubhouse regarding books. Personally, I think the best book is the birth of modern luxury followed by Marc Jacobs LV
     
  3. Ah, that make sense! Thank you :smile:
     
  4. The Birth of Modern Luxury is my favorite LV book...
     
  5. I've seen a lot of recommendations for this book. Can you tell me a little more about the contents of it? Is there an equal amount of text and artwork?
     

  6. It is a beautiful book, perfect for all of us LV lovers! IMO there is an equal amount of text and wonderful pictures of the company's history, ad campaigns and products. I got the "City Bags" book for Christmas, which is also nice, but not like this one. I got mine at Amazon, and I'm pretty sure you can "preview" part of it.
     
  7. Thank you for the information!

  10. I received The Birth of Modern Luxury from my parents this past Christmas. I definitely recommend it. The photos are gorgeous. You get the story of the LV family and the brand. I think if you love LV it is a must!
