In his Travel Book, the French writer, illustrator and painter Nicolas de Crécy depicts Mexico as a baroque country full of poetry.

His books, inspired by philosophy, literature and Surrealism, come in varied graphic and stylistic forms. The books revisit many genres such as graphic novels, mangas, travel books, drawings and several techniques such as ink, watercolor, pencil, gouache, pen, and chalk.

Some panels of his Mexico Travel Book, packed with detail, call for color, while others are simple, drawn quickly and incisively with a ballpoint pen or black ink. Alternating them brings out the best in each. Nicolas de Crécy’s book is a reflection of the country; baroque, feverish and powerful.

A limited edition of the Travel Book, numbered and signed by the artist, is available in select Louis Vuitton stores.
