If you’re young and in-the-know, Abbi Jacobson is a woman that already looms large in your conscience. Not only does she crush it as the star and showrunner of Comedy Central’s standout show Broad City, but she’s also an accomplished illustrator. It is Jacobson’s rush-of-color line drawings that wiggle about as the show’s title and transition sequences. On top of that, she’s published two coloring books, Color This Book: New York City and Color This Book: San Francisco.
Now, Jacobson’s revealed the cover of her third illustration book, Carry This Book. With her trademark quirkiness and simplicity, Jacobson imagines the interiors of celebrities’ bags and purses, from “Martha Stewart’s hand-knit fanny pack” to “Donald Trump’s weekender”. It’s another brilliant bit of proof that Jacobson has a natural knack for making the mundane seem bright and unusual.
Carry This Book comes out on October 11th. Can’t wait that long? Well, you’ll have to, but you can give yourself peace of mind by pre-ordering it here.
