    Default LV BIBLE.... latest LV Book purchase....

    Hello Girls,
    The reason I update my details about my holiday and LV adventures is because of 1 thing..... YOU GIRLS HERE ARE MY TRUE FRIENDS! Archie does not have many friends - something to do with Archie's low tolerance for fools, Archie adamant materialism and Archie's busy life.

    Being an LV "lunatic" collector involves devoting alot of time to this pursuit - checking ebay auctions, checking google, adding books and literature etc.....

    My LV Literature collection from a few weeks ago is here.....


    Since this photo was taken I have added 2 new books -

    Vintage Luggage - Great book about vintage luggage - not exclusively LV, but alot of LV. Also alot of reason why LV is so highly regarded ie. brass locks are a sign of quality and class. This book was a bit expensive about about US$130- however I just love the cover.... and I can't really be stingy about my hobby. Books are always a great investment - once they go out of print the price rises. Mind you - I would ever sell my books.


    NEXT BOOK - THE LV BIBLE!
    Louis Vuitton - the birth of modern luxury.
    I bought this book from the Cairns LV store for AU$190- (great price - cheaper than Amazon - and complete with LV store service!!!)
    The LV store wrapped it perfectly and I was happy to finally have this book. I passed this book up a few years ago (as it was expensive) and have regretted it since.
    This book is the LV Bible.... focuses more on the history and not new items. Great for learning about LV locks, hard case luggage etc.

    Do you just have LV-related books/catalogs? Or do you collect other kinds of books as well?

    I collect books about all my hobbies - Luxury Watches, Cartier Items, Diamonds, Jewellery etc.....

    But I do have an extra soft spot for Louis Vuitton.
