A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - From the mind of Broad City's Abbi Jacobson, a wonderfully weird and weirdly wonderful illustrated look at the world around us--all through the framework of what we carry.
"Jacobson's art is warm, textured, and carefully composed, a little bit Maira Kalman and a little bit Roz Chast. It's also genuinely funny." --Vox
With bright, quirky, and colorful line drawings, Jacobson brings to life actual and imagined items found in the pockets and purses, bags and glove compartments of real and fantastical people--whether it's the contents of Oprah's favorite purse, Amelia Earhart's pencil case, or Bernie Madoff's suitcase.
How many self-tanning lotions are in Donald Trump's weekender? What's inside Martha Stewart's hand-knit fanny pack? What kind of protein bars does Michelle Obama hide in her tiny clutch at the White House Correspondents' Dinner? An instant New York Times bestseller, Carry This Book provides a humorous and insightful look into how the things we carry around every day can make up who we are.
