Take Ivy Reprint $1,424.99 on Ebay
Go figure. The book, Take Ivy takes almost $1,500 outta some mojo's pocket on EBay. See it here and close your mouth.
It's nice to know there's still some money out there. It's even nicer to know there's some stupid money out there. What Steve Martin called, "Fur Sink" money. I'll admit my interest was peaked when I saw the book. I emailed a question to the seller about the publish date and he responded it was a reprint. I considered offering him $200 to save himself some time. I guess I'm the moron.
This silly ass book has generated more attention on blogs and forums than is sane. I can only guess it does so with images that many find hard to put into words. My favorite picture has always been the kid standing on the corner of Nassau Street. Almost an icon of a style and time I wish for but know is impossible to have. So, someone paid a healthy sum so they can read it while they're going to the bathroom. Actually, a book dealer bought it. I would imagine he'll try and double what he paid for it. Look for it. I imagine a few will be showing up very soon.
