French handbag manufacturer Goyard has made headlines recently for its book release. Why, is this? Well, because the book costs $7,000. The book - which is dedicated to celebrating the 1920s as the golden age of luxury travel - is limited edition, with only 233 copies in print. Each bears a number to signify its rarity and comes in a customizable Goyard trunk (packaging alone worth the price.)
Maison E. Goyard was established in 1853 by François Goyard strictly as a luggage manufacturer.

In the meantime, here’s to an evening of candlelight, a bottle of fine Bordeaux and your favorite book.
Sometimes bar stories are meant to be forgotten, while some books are not made for everyone. How to Piss in Public by Gavin McInnes is one of those books. It is a memoir of sorts and insanely hilarious, (in a straight-jacket sorta way). From Teenage Rebellion to the Hangover of Adulthood, this book proves that some people just don’t give a sh*t.
