First look: Louis Vuitton's London guide

Watch artist Natsko Seki talk about her drawings

Louis Vuitton is today launching its latest collection of travel books, and London is one of the cities that the label is championing.

Slightly more sophisticated than your average Lonely Planet guide, the travel books are beautifully illustrated by emerging artists handpicked by the Louis Vuitton team.

Japanese illustrator Natsko Seki is the hand behind the capital’s book, combining sketches and photographs to capture London landmarks from Piccadilly Circus to the Tate Modern.


Watch the short film below to get a first look at Natsko’s illustrations and hear her talk about the project...
