    I saw eBay,Take Ivy, and the $4 and got really excited. Then I read the rest and looked at the eBay page. It’s a shame such a great book is virtually impossible to come by.

    Anyone want to go halfsies on the bidding price with me? You get it for six months, I’ll get it for six months. It will be like a timeshare, except awesome.

    I’ve got a better idea. The entire online community of guys interested in this book should all chip in. It should belong to the people!

    What people ultimately want are the scans — the book itself is just for the collector. So someone should buy it and everyone pays him $1 to see the scans, either out of good faith, or maybe the scans are kept on a forum where you have to register.

    Most of the pages are scanned here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mkwilliams/sets/72157605357121862/

    Oh, that’s most of them? I thought that was only part of the book.

    I think it’s overrated because of its foreignness and rarity.

    i had never seen the pics before – thanks for the scans!

    i have some early 60′s j press catalogues – i’ll trade for a copy of ‘take ivy’ (this is like menswear baseball cards!)

    will throw in a ‘gentry’ with original swatches intact!!

    I have seen copies on the Japanese Ebay for significantly less. You might want to check there first.
