Jean-Louis Dumas, former president of Hermes, carries around a little sketchbook wherever he goes and uses it to record all of his various travel experiences. Jean-Louis himself designed the travel pouch that houses 32 WHERE?. Contributors include Andreas Gursky, Mary Ellen Mark, Wolfgang Tillmans, Lauren Greenfield, Peter Lindbergh, and Jeff Burton. The postcards illustrate the original graphic treatment on the reverse side of each of the 55 silver-edged images. We sent boxes of them to friends in such far-flung places as Tokyo, Bangkok, Paris, and Brooklyn, which they then mailed back to us with the requisite postage stamps, and the inevitable wear and tear of shipping and handling.
