$150,000 Magazine Collection

This summer, Visionaire will offer 10 complete sets of its first 50 issues in the Goyard trunks for $150,000. From its premiere issue in April 1991, Visionaire challenged notions of what it meant to be an art and fashion publication. The first edition was funded with $7,000 from editor Stephen Gan's savings and printed on mix of remnant paper. From there, the editors set out to make objects that people would cherish and keep, they became something of a barometer of "cool." Collectors will also be offered the option of buying empty trunks for $54,000 that they can customize. SOURCE
