I bought a couple of year books from Rhode Island School of design from 1965-67.
They're filled of amazingly beautiful B&W pictures capturing the students in their everyday life. In the studio, discussing models etc etc.
They're all constantly smoking, which looks really fabulous in a very film noir kind of way.
Sometimes a cigarette can be the best accessorie in the world, and you can quote me on that one.

Also bought a very coveted book called Take Ivy from my favourite vintage dealer in NYC.

If you love american sportswear the way it should look, you will not be dissapointed.
Will post pictures in the near future!

Hello,

Just wondering if you'd be willing to post some of the pics of the Take Ivy book?

Also do you know of anyone that has a copy of this for sale at the moment? Does the Vintage Book dealer in NYC you bought this from have more of these are any of the japanese magazine like this?

Thanks,
