    Description

    Visionaire 32, The Where? Issue by Hermes, #849/3500, 2000, with Hermes Box and Vache Naturelle Leather Case
    Excellent to Pristine Condition
    8" Width x 6.5" Height x 1" Depth
    In 2000, Visionaire teamed up with Hermes to produce "Where?", an issue based on travel, a consistent muse of the luxury house. The casing of the issue is an embossed Vache Naturelle Leather carrying case inspired by Jean Louis Dumas' own traveling sketchbook. Inside the case, there is a pencil and a collection of fifty five silver edged postcards; the postcards have been created by a luminary roster of artists such as Andreas Gursky, Wolfgang Tillmans, Bruce Weber, Manolo Blahnik, Gregory Crewdson, David LaChapelle and Karl Lagerfeld. Each postcard was further customized by unique graphic designs on the reverse sides. The whole issue is bundled in a drawstring Hermes dustbag and encased in a slip case version of the signature brown and orange Hermes box. The issue was produced in an edition of 3500 and sold out almost instantly.

    This issue is in Excellent to Pristine Condition. The sides of the Hermes box are slightly damaged. The original plastic is no longer attached, as seen in the photo.
