” Vintage Hermes, The Patrons Edition “
Since ‘Vintage Hermes 1837-2000’ was first published, we’ve had people ask us for a follow up book. The author, Arnoud Last, had just lifted the draft for the second book on Hermès from his drawer in early 2020 for a final review, when everything suddenly changed for everyone.
As a result of the many changes in the publishing arena over the past year, we had to postpone production of the long awaited sequel publication of Vintage Hermès. Now following months of conversations & negotiations with parties involved, we’ve decided to bring this new publishing project to life.
After carefully reviewing and weighing our options, we have chosen to bring this publication to life through crowd funding. Crowd-funding this new edition enables us to take design, publishing & production into our own hands, expedite production, and reciprocate the support of our patrons with a special offer.We ask for your patronage in helping this creative process come to fruition, and in appreciation of your support, you will receive a unique numbered copy of the new book, Vintage Hermes 2000-2020 at a special patron’s price. Your copy will also be personalized by Arnoud, making it a bespoke book.
This offer of “The Patron’s Edition” is limited to only 111 pieces worldwide. As soon as the 111 copies are sold, production will commence, and we will begin shipping out the books to our respective supporters.
By using coupon code “PATRON”, the first 111 buyers will pay only $408 for this personalized & numbered “Patrons Edition” instead of the normal retail price of $558.
Aside from being among the first 111 to savor this beautiful new publication for $150 under the retail price, your special numbered copy of Vintage Hermès 2000-2020 will come with an added personal inscription just for you as a bonus for your support.
This second luxury reference coffee table book on Hermès will address the limited editions & special orders of the Birkin, Kelly and Constance introduced by Hermès between 2000 and 2020.
