Overlooking the splendid setting of Capri's Piazzetta, the historic newsstand, a landmark for residents and visitors to the azure isle, is once again shining thanks to Louis Vuittton's contribution. After more than 90 years in business, the newsstand has moved, leaving a void for all visitors and residents looking for newspapers, magazines and books from all over the world. That's why Louis Vuitton chose this place, a reference for almost a century of reading lovers, as the new space dedicated to the Maison's signature publishing, enlivening it with the rainbow of series dedicated to travel, the City Guides, Fashion Eyes and Travel Books.

CAPRI CITY GUIDE
To celebrate the Capri leg of the project, a special edition signed Louis Vuitton has been created, one of a kind, representing the fusion of the Maison's publishing universes dedicated to travel. In fact, the edition is presented as a blue casket, in homage to the seaside destination, collecting ten wonderful postcards illustrated with works signed by Aurore de la Morinerie, taken from the Travel Book Mediterranean Sea.
