Take Ivy Hullabaloo

By now, most people are familiar with Take Ivy, the cultishly popular 1965 Japanese homage to classic American (preppy? Trad?) style. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, jump here for a brief explanation, then catch up with us.) powerHouse books recently acquired the English language rights and is publishing an updated, translated version on August 31 (tip: pre-order NOW). If you’re a super-fan, you can find copies of a few early (1973 or ’79) Japanese editions on eBay (first editions are s-c-a-r-c-e), or for a scant $2000, you can own the one powerHouse actually used in their production process via Partners & Spade. Or you can contact me via email for the copy I scanned in above.
