* books about travel destinations from Louis Vuitton where an illustrator acts as a visuals provider and general guide may sound kind of dubious on a first pass, but then you read "Lorenzo Mattotti" in conjunction with the book on Vietnam

. I have no idea what it is, but it looks like a lot of fun.
* a preview of Ciudad

comic is a little late.
