Review
"At a whopping 400 pages, including three book-in-books, "Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture" is a rich brew of all the house's creative associations..." ~Hint Magazine

Product Description
Luxury and art have never been more closely linked than they are in these early years of the twenty-first century. Virtually all the world’s major luxury houses have associated themselves with contemporary art through sponsorships, commissions, or foundations, and these points of exchange nourish the increasingly symbiotic relationship between fashion, art, and other design disciplines. Of all modern luxury brands, Louis Vuitton can claim to maintain the richest and most varied associations with the world of art. Included in this volume are Louis Vuitton’s important collaborations with an elite group of artists, architects, designers, and photographers, such as Jun Aoki, Shigeru Ban, Vanessa Beecroft, Olafur Eliasson, Zaha Hadid, David LaChapelle, Jean Larivière, Annie Leibovitz, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Stephen Sprouse, James Turrell, Inez Van Lamsweerde, and Vinoodh Matadin. The book is structured as a seductive anthology of the house’s most visible collaborations. Critical essays examine and position Louis Vuitton’s patronage—under the guidance of Artistic Director Marc Jacobs—during one of the most fertile periods of contemporary art and design.

About the Author
Marc Jacobs is the Creative Director of Louis Vuitton Malletier and the chief designer of Vuitton’s ready-to-wear collections.

I assume it was the regular version and not the Louis Vuitton version with special cover and plexiglass slip case? My store still has a few copies of them left.

Fabulous tip, thanks! I haven't purchased any books yet but with my utter fascination with everything LV I think this might be a good thing!

Yep, the regular version is the one you got. The special edition one with the different cover and plexiglass slip case can only be bought at Louis Vuitton :smile: But yes, the same book, just different covers! I was tempted to get both because I quite like the regular cover!
