Drawn from the archives of Hermes, here is a collection of enchanting stories and profiles that trace the odyssey of the family business founded by Thierry Hermes in 1837. Author Luc Charbin brings to life the voices of the saddlers, sales assistants, window-dressers, silversmiths, and gardeners of Hermes across several generations, accompanied by the distinctive drawings of Alice Charbin. A leather-clad wheelbarrow to store the Duchess of Windsor's many gloves, a capricious apple tree, an extraordinary museum, an iconic bag, and a 40-year-old diary in the spotlight-these are among the characters and objects that tell the story of Hermes: Straight from the Horse's Mouth.
