    This book is absolutely stunning. It comes with a book cover, which is seen in the main photo as well as the gallery, that ends with a diagonally-slanted flap which reveals the actual cover of the book (the white background, gold letters). The book feels sturdy and durable while still retaining a sense of high quality. It is obvious that this book was meticulously crafted. From the feel of the pages to it’s textured cover, this book represents everything Louis Vuitton stands for. The book contains text about Louis Vuitton’s life and the progression of the company from a small boutique to the internationally-acclaimed fashion house it is today. The Louis Vuitton portion of the book also includes photos of early Louis Vuitton projects and commentary on the fashion at that time. The Marc Jacobs section of the book, however, elaborates on the era of experimentation on products brought on by Jacob’s direction, rather than focusing to much on the company itself. Overall, this book is incredible and the photos are extremely glamourous. This book is definitely a “must buy” for any fashion lover, like myself, or anybody who appreciates photography. One thing I will say, though, is that the preview for this book is somewhat misleading, as there are much more photographs in the book than presented in the preview.

    This is a nicely produced book focusing on the contributions of both Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs to the world of fashion.
    The book is divided into two sections, the first is devoted to the history of Louis Vuitton and its rise as a powerful label. The text is enhanced by several clear b&w photographs,rare archival materials, and some period advertisements.
    The second section focuses on the reign of Marc Jacobs, his creations and artistic collaborations. This section is mostly pictorial. The fashion shoots are clear, large and colorful, and they present a selection of Jacobs’ creations and campaigns since he took the helm at Louis Vuitton.
    The book ends with a small section reproducing a selection of small photos highlighting the label’s recent ad campaigns and fashion shows.
    The overall quality of the book is beautiful and it is a recommended addition to any fashion collection.
