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.
