Take Ivy

It’s the perfect storm for this reissue from powerHouse Books.

With the popularity of the TRUE PREP (the re-fashioning of the classic, The Preppie Handbook) along with Fashion Week hitting New York City, the English reissue of the 1965 Japanese fashion photography book TAKE IVY has jumped up to #167 in Amazon book sales. The book was also cited as inspiration for the original Preppie Handbook in the this New York Times piece by Janet Maslin.

And, who knows: some of the seasoned audience might find younger versions of themselves within its pages. Many of the photos here are set in or around Ivy League libraries. Wait, they were taking pictures in the library? Is that allowed?
