“TRUE PREP” – Now Available in Paperback!

"True Prep" by Lisa Birnbach and Chip Kidd, Illustrations by Randy GlassLast year I took on a really fun assignment – creating illustrations for the book #TruePrep, written by #LisaBirnbach with #ChipKidd and published by #AlfredA.Knopf. This was a sequel of sorts…perhaps more a follow-up to Lisa’s hugely successful #TheOfficialPreppyHandbook from 1980.

I am neither proud or ashamed of the fact that I was not exactly well-versed on the “preppy” lifestyle prior to all this (my wardrobe consists mostly of t-shirts with either lots of paint splatters, or my more upscale t-shirts – with fewer). Lisa and Chip were patient hand-holders at first, and once we got into a groove…this was as enjoyable a collaboration as I can remember.

“True Prep” was released in hardcover last Fall and spent most of this past year on #TheNewYorkTimesBestSellerList (YAY!). And – it is being released TODAY in paperback…with a brand-new, eye catchin’ front cover!! Grab one at your favorite bookstore (pay for it, of course), buy online, or check it out at your local library. I think you’ll get a kick out of it!

And I have my very own pair of Tommy Hilfiger shoes now…
