|Ruben Toledo 100 Postcards For Louis Vuitton City Guide, $125. Available Oct. 15 at Louis Vuitton.|
With the launch of his new 100-postcards-from-100-cities box set, artist and fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo wants you to find a quiet café and rediscover the joy of putting pen to paper.
The vividly coloured iconic scenes on each card were selected from pages of Louis Vuitton’s City Guides, which Toledo has been illuminating since 1998.
Now that the postcards are taken care of, all that’s missing is the round-the-world ticket and a set of monogrammed luggage.
