Carry This Book

By Abbi Jacobson
From the mind of Broad City s Abbi Jacobson a wonderfully weird and weirdly wonderful illustrated look at the world around us all through the framework of what we carry.
With bright, quirky, and colorful line drawings, Jacobson brings to life actual and imagined items found in the pockets and purses, bags and glove compartments of real and fantastical people whether it s the contents of Oprah s favorite purse, Amelia Earhart s pencil case, or Bernie Madoff s suitcase.
How many self-tanning lotions are in Donald Trump s weekender? What s inside Martha Stewart s hand-knit fanny pack? What kind of protein bars does Michelle Obama hide in her tiny clutch at the White House Correspondents Dinner? Carry This Book provides a humorous and insightful look into how the things we carry around every day can make up who we are."


    REVIEW QUOTES
Abbi is a visionary. She is fiercely creative, and her voracious imagination is palpable on these pages. Her illustration is a world I want to literally jump into and live in, and I m closer to it than ever before with Carry This Book. It s interactive and voyeuristic, and the most delicious part is seeing inside Abbi s curious, romantic mind. Ilana Glazer We ve been asked what s in our wallets. We ve been told what s in a name. Now Abbi looks at what s in the bags and suitcases of real and fictional people. Homer Simpson? Check. Michael Jordan? Check. Anna Wintour? Check. Looking at these illustrations and trying to guess who they belong to is like an inside-out game of Where s Waldo? You know what s amazing? After I was done reading, I emptied out my own Kipling bag, and this book was in it. Questlove Abbi is very smart. And she can write. And she can draw. She conquers all. Abbisolutely. Maira Kalman Using a comedic, ingenious blurring of reality and fantasy, Abbi has created a wondrous peek into secret worlds. Her work captures something essential about her subjects, allowing us to revel and delight in an imagined space. Carry This Book is visually enchanting and a joy to read. Carrie Brownstein The hilarious and lovely Abbi Jacobson is in book form. Fantastic! Aziz Ansari Carry This Bookis chock-full of adorable, full-color marker and pencil drawings. . . .Jacobson says she searched the internet for real information about each person (did you know that Albert Einstein never wore socks?), which adds a wily touch to the book. What s real and what s made up? It s all part of the fun. KQED Arts"
