Reverie is our visual notebook series exploring musings, daydreams and studies in practices and cultures that inspire our own. With a lengthy equestrian background, TMC is inherently influenced by the duality of equine accoutrement... tack, riding equipment... taking notes from both its elegant beauty and durability in construction. Here we share excerpts from a book that has been long on our wishlist, La Selle Hermés by Arnault Joubin, published by Editions Du Collectionneur in 1993. The rare printed work covers the notable quality and history of French leather saddles and saddlery made by Hermés, combining intricate design with hardwearing functionality.
