From the Bookshelf

A fascinating book!  Massive amounts of info and vintage photos.  A history of the trunk with pictures from the mid 1800's, through the beginnings of Vuitton and beyond. Schematic drawings of several models, pages of old travel labels and hardware.  Even includes price guides and what to look for when buying, Fun to peruse for anyone with an interest in the golden age of travel, steampunk and all things vintage. Out of print - look for a copy at your local library or if you're feeling flush there are a few pricey copies used on Amazon.


  1. Okay, is this the perfect book for you, or what?

  2. Chris - It really is quite amazing. I just stumbled across it at the library one day.
