Wonderful Karl news comes to us from British Vogue:

Karl has appplied his design talent to the 2009 edition of the lauded French illustrated dictionary Le Petit Larousse Illustré (Larousse Small Illustrated Dictionary) – joining the ranks of Christian Lacroix and comic book artist Moebius as designers who have lent their aesthetic vision to the tome in the past.

Lagerfeld’s love of books is well known – his personal library is reportedly the size of a ballroom – and for the cover of the annual book he has illustrated the original Larousse motif of a woman blowing the seeds of knowledge, otherwise known as La Semeuse. Lagerfeld’s Semeuse is clad in naught but a pair of blue, elbow length gloves.

The black case is adorned with a photo-realistic sketch of the man himself accompanied by the words “Habillé par Karl Lagerfeld” (“dressed by Karl Lagerfeld”) and, for the first time, Lagerfeld has joined Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard in the dictionary’s proper noun section, reports WWD. The book is due for release on November 9.
