A delightfully illustrated miscellany of stories from the world of Hermès
Drawn from the archives of Hermès, here is a collection of enchanting stories and profiles that trace the odyssey of the family business founded by Thierry Hermès in 1837.
Author Luc Charbin brings to life the voices of the saddlers, sales assistants, window-dressers, silversmiths, and gardeners of Hermès across several generations, accompanied by the distinctive drawings of Alice Charbin.
A leather-clad wheelbarrow to store the Duchess of Windsor’s many gloves, a capricious apple tree, an extraordinary museum, an iconic bag, and a 40-year-old diary in the spotlight—these are among the characters and objects that tell the story of Hermès: Straight from the Horse’s Mouth.
