First Look: Louis Vuitton Guide to London by Natsko Seki

NEWS | | Leave a Comment

The house of Louis Vuitton has launched a series of travel books, designed to be an accompaniment to the brand’s already-popular city guides. The tomes detail the best places to eat, drink, shop, stay and be seen, and are illustrated with work by emerging artists picked by the Louis Vuitton team.

Tokyo-born Natsko Seki is the talented hand behind the London edition, which takes us on a delightful pictorial journey from Regent’s Canal, via some inevitable red telephone boxes, the ex-industrial Tate Modern and onto the Bank of England.

The tour does not end there, as can only be expected with our sprawling capital. In fact, Seki already had in mind some of the London landmarks she wanted to draw, but as she started the project and began to walk around the city, her list inevitably took on a life of its own. The result is far from the clunky travel-guides we might previously have known; it is a piece of art that even the most discerning coffee table would be proud of and will encourage you to look at London through freshly illustrated lenses.
