Take Ivy: An American style bible reissued

As I noted in my piece on Japanese repro-authenticity, the Japanese are experts in spotting a good thing and refining it again and again.

And they've done it again. Take Ivy, the 1965 photo essay of Ivy League style, is being republished again after years of being out of print. But this time the book is riding on a tidal wave of mainstream interest in American heritage and style.

The new reissued edition will cost just $24.95. I'm glad I held off on purchasing an original edition on eBay!
