From the "Chicago Tribune's" Cindy Dampier:

“This is the sunniest book I have ever done,” says Swiss artist Thomas Ott, nodding at the book, “Route 66,” lying on the chic marble coffee table between us. It’s neither small nor large, modest for an art book, clunky for a travel guide. It’s one of four new titles in a series of travel books, intended as visual scrapbooks compiled by one artist per destination, commissioned by the fashion house Louis Vuitton. There’s even a tiny LV logo, the same one that blankets the company’s ubiquitous handbags, centered discreetly on the back.

The cover is a full illustration in Ott’s black-and-white scratchboard style, a grainy depiction of a roadside motel with kitschy sign stretching into a black sky, representing the sights he saw on a trip down the iconic American highway Route 66. It’s a book intended to lend a touch of the graphic novel to your stack of coffee table books, a hint of something dark — but not dark enough to make the Vuitton-buying public uneasy. It’s edgy-lite.
