a very lovely book with lot's of history and information, you would love it if you love fashion and art together, instead of simply just a bag by LV.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of LV 24 Sep 2009
By W. Rosen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a ginormous book chronicling all of the wonderful collaborations LV has done with artists and photographers. It's large format, full color, beautiful paper and an impressive collection. Whether you are a collector or just a fan this book provides plenty of reference material and inspiration. From Takashi Murakami to Stephen Sprouse to Richard Prince and many, many others this showcases all of the wonderful designs that have come from these artistic mashups. It's all here and looks fabulous. For fans of the artists and for LV lovers this is a visual treat and highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars construction a little shoddy 2 Oct 2009
By teepee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The contents of this book are wonderful, edgy photography, great subject matter.
If you are expecting just fashion, this is not the book for you. It contains storefronts, (hint:architecture in the title), art and just enough fashion to satisfy a woman. The actual book I received is a little shoddy.The binding does not seem strong and it feels the pages may come out with a lot of use. There also was
tearing on the title page next to the spine, this is a new book and I am a liitle
disappointed in the condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diverse & colorful insights into the LV world 20 April 2011
By J. Wang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
For those that are curious, this is the same book as the Exclusive Edition one available in LV boutiques and the online store for $130. The only difference is the cover art work, 5 multiple colored tassels for bookmarking, and the plastic slipcase found on the Exclusive Edition. Otherwise, the content of the book is exactly the same.

I was debating between purchasing this book and the Louis Vuitton: The Birth of Modern Luxury. After browsing through both books at my local LV boutique, I realized that they are actually quite different and intended for different audience. For me, I was immediately drawn to the art works and worldwide architecture designs and photos in the Art, Fashion, and Architecture book and how they relate to the overall image and designs of the company's products. Numerous color photos of great past and current LV ads as well as display window pictures are another attraction that drew me to purchase this book. Basically, I think of the The Birth of Modern Luxury as a "library, archival, historical" type of book while the Art, Fashion, and Architecture as the actual "modern, fashionable, and diverse" offering. I believe if you are into beautiful, high quality pictures and less reading, then this should be the choice between the two books.

Personally, I actually prefer this Standard Edition over the Exclusive Edition simply because I don't need the slipcase and find the cover design on the Exclusive Edition a bit too cartoon-like.
This is really one of the nicest coffee table books I've ever purchased both in design and quality. My book arrived in pristine condition and Amazon did a great job packing and shipping. A note regarding the binding issue some other reviewers brought up, the copy at the LV boutique looks like it's been opened and flattened for a prolonged period and although the pages are well attached, they did look like you might be able to tear a page loose if you flip the page too hard or fast. It is however the same with the other large format LV books in the store made by different publishers. I believe this is just the way they make large format books with nice thick glossy papers. As long as you don't press the book open, you will never have to worry about binding issues.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok if you are into architecture 5 Nov 2010
By Diana M. Holland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book really is for architect buffs. I thought it would go into more fashion history but it really is about architecture and interior design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture 14 Jan 2012
By Lilly Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a visually stunning book detailing the fashion and architectural beauty created by LV. The book is loaded with beautiful color photography illustrating LV various creations (fashion, handbags, shoes...etc) as well as various shots showing the beautiful LV stores across the globe (the shots are both exterior & interior).
There are also some short chapters explaining the sources of inspiration behind the different collections.
The book takes an A-Z format detailing all the designers and artists who collaborated with LV.
Highly recommended for all LV fans and anyone interested in beautiful fashion books.
