If only I had $150,000...

The always avant-garde magazine Visionaire has teamed-up with Goyard to make 10 complete sets of its first 50 issues in a trunk made ad hoc for the anniversary. The only impediment for me to buy it, is the fact that I don't own $150,000.

But if you are willing to pay the mentioned amount, let me tell you it worths it. The truck includes things like "the "Vinyl Killer" Mini, a battery-operated car with a needle on its underside that plays music as it travels across the record grooves" or The Diana Vreeland memos issue.

I've seen the Diana Vreeland memos up on eBay occasionally but I've missed out every time. Next time!

Awhile ago, I did some research on "Visionaire," and this is a "reasonable" price for this kind of project. They do one-of-a-kind issues and don't follow common printing protocols, which is very expensive.

The issues and series are limited-edition collectors' items, filled with original visions from artists and designers with noplace else to show their work. If you value visual imagery, and you've got a fat bank account, it's worth it.
