Taking printing to its luxurious extreme, just as it had with luggages, Goyard is producing a book celebrating its history, seven years in the making. All for just 5000 euros. Yummy!

“Goyard, in collaboration with Devambez, announces the launch of the first book devoted to the legendary Parisian trunk maker.

Continuing the heritage of the prestigious collections from the 1920s, this extremely limited edition publication resonates with and celebrates the golden age of luxury travel, from horse-drawn carriages to the great transatlantic ocean liners. The book is presented within a made to order trunk. Each client is now invited to make a named copy of this highly collectable book into a unique piece.
One is not only able to choose the colour of the case’s canvas, but also to affix specific initials and stripes upon it. Copies are numbered from 1 to 233, validating the rarity and authenticity of both the book and the Goyard trunk which encases it.
This magnificent art book uses traditional letterpress techniques for the text, features its own watermarks and is printed upon custom made vellum paper à la forme of Arches Mills. Goyard and the Éditions d’Art Devambez have succeeded in simultaneously creating a precious object in its own right as well as a captivating tome, both of which are characterized by a true sense of splendour.
