Voyages extraordinaires New

Voyages extraordinaires

From the locomobile crossing Bombay to the light zeppelins and long-haul aircrafts flying over the Atlantic, through the steamers sailing on the Mississippi River and the legendary trains that crossed the endless steppes of Mongolia or the prairies of the American West, the new means of locomotion of the early twentieth century allowed for an unprecedented travel experience. In Voyages Extraordinaires, Francisca Mattéoli tells the story of some fifty excursions from the mid-19th century to the present day. 

After a first collaboration on Escales autour du monde, Louis Vuitton has renewed his association with EXB to conceive this journey illustrated by photographic archives and old advertising posters. This publication relates the emergence of the modern globetrotter whether a scientist, adventurer, artist or writer. Distant lands are no longer accessible only to aristocrats and explorers. In this book, Francisca Mattéoli constructs the story of these new means of locomotion that offered travelers new horizons. The borders of the world are becoming tangible.
