Louis Vuitton’s latest book release is Extraordinary Voyages, an illustrated tour of the world in 50 stops and just as many means of travel.

From luxury ocean liners to Nautilus-inspired submarines, ever-faster long-haul airplanes to ever-more comfortable lightweight airships, steamships that descended the most unpredictable river to trains that crossed entire continents… The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw the emergence of many new means of transport, offering brand-new perspectives to experience the globe. In the atlas of the imagination, these innovations allowed travelers to understand the world in a completely different fashion.


Since its founding in 1854, Louis Vuitton has been a part of this emergence of modern globe-trotting, having equipped passengers with trunks and luggage for the long haul – whether they were explorers, eccentrics, aristocrats, artists, hedonists or adventurers. Author and world traveler Francisca Mattéoli tells 50 of the most remarkable of journeys of the past two centuries in this richly illustrated saga full of images from Louis Vuitton’s archives, vintage photographs and travel posters.
