Take Ivy (take two, coming soonish)

I know I've posted about this before, but I'm bumping this post up because has Take Ivy for a ridiculous $13.47 pre-order price. That's almost half off the cover price and almost 4 dollars lower than the lowest price I've seen it. I just ordered my copy and you might want to as well, because according to The Trad, "The first printing is 10,000 copies of which 6,000 have been pre-sold." (and this was from a post nearly a month ago).

So yeah, 1-month advance warning. Take Ivy, the much written about photo book from Teruyoshi Hayashida, is being reprinted (finally) and released on August 31, 2010.

Originally shot in the 60s, this elusive book has been sort of a holy grail of prep style for basically forty years. Over the past couple years, copies have sold on various auction and book sites for hundreds of dollars, and The Trad even went through the painstaking (and surprisingly non-litigious, so far) process of scanning and posting the entire book on his site.

Pre-orders are sitting at a dirt cheap $16.50 right now, but I'm sure I'll re-post this when it's release date gets a little closer.
