A fold-out poster guide to the elements of Ivy League style as interpreted by veteran Japanese illustrator Kazuo Hozumi. Since the 1960s, Kazuo Hozumi has documented the minutiae of Ivy League-style clothing. His cheerful characters are shown wearing buttondown shirts, buckle-back chinos, natural shoulder herringbone tweed jackets and the plethora of items that fall within this style. Hozumi's finely observed illustration work has gained a cult following for the unerring accuracy with which he depicts menswear and his deceptively simple style, with echoes of both Japanese Kokeshi dolls and American children's author and illustrator Richard Scarry. Illustrated Ivy is the first time Kazuo Hozumi's Ivy illustrations have been available with his accompanying text in English.
