Louis Vuitton is honouring artist Ruben Toledo’s work with the release of a collector’s set of 100 postcards in fluorescent colours, a real retrospective of the illustrations created for the Louis Vuitton City Guides since 1998. The Postcard Box celebrates the 100 illustrations Toledo has created for the Louis Vuitton City Guides, images that capture in paint the guides' distinct vision of travel and passion for detail.“ My aim is to paint a portrait of a city and to draw out its special and eternal essence; to capture the unique tempo and character of each.”
The Louis Vuitton City Guides collection has already passed through nearly 100 cities across the world and calls on the talents of more than one hundred independent journalists and writers, who provide an attentive, informed commentary on the changes shaking the heart of cities, offering objective views on fashion, design, the arts and gastronomy.
