The Louis Vuitton Travel Book collection is an invitation to real and virtual voyages. In its pages, the illustrations of renowned artists and promising young talents tell the stories of the cities and countries they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people. The Travel Book offers a new, contemporary vision of travel, taking in both remote wildernesses and cities that never sleep. Each artist explores a country previously unknown to them in a medium of their choosing. The creative worlds on show are highly diverse: drawing, painting, collage, contemporary art, illustration, cartoons or manga.
In this volume, Canadian-born artist Marcel Dzama visits Morocco, capturing the day-to-day lives of its people, their customs and traditions, and exploring its impressive variety of landscapes, from seashores to deserts and mountain ranges. His images balance reality and sometimes near-abstract or surreal representation.
