Iconic Louis Vuitton Trunk Inspires Book

Related: Louis Vuitton, Accessories

Eleven French writers gained access to Louis Vuitton's grandson, Gaston-Louis Vuitton's, collection of photograph's and newspaper cuttings. Gaston-Louis Vuitton, it seems, was a big trunk aficionado. The eleven writers used the old photographs as inspiration for a collection of short stories called The Trunk.

Due out in March, the 356-page book is being published by Les Editions Louis Vuitton and Les Editions Gallimard, and includes stories written by are Éliette Abécassis, Fabienne Berthaud, Marie Darrieussecq, Virginie Despentes, Nicolas d'Estienne d'Orves, Patrick Eudeline, David Foenkinos, Philippe Jaenada, Yann Moix, Véronique Ovaldé and Bruno de Stabenrath

A limited edition, leather-bound version will be available in Louis Vuitton stores and on their website for purchase in French, English and Japanese. The bookstore version will be published in French only.
