Oh yeah, just in case you have never heard of this book check out the sales copy:

From Lisa Birnbach, the author of The Official Preppy Handbook, and designer Chip Kidd, comes a whole new take on the prep world. True Prep is a contemporary look at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshiping, G&T-soaked preppies adapt to the new order of things. Birnbach considers the preppy attitude towards money, schools, wardrobe, work, decorating, scandal, and food and drink. She also looks at weekends, entertaining, sports, weddings, etiquette, the Internet and electronic gadgetry, political correctness, reality TV, and . . . polar fleece. And last but not least: a do-it-yourself eulogy. With more than 200 original illustrations and photographs, True Prep promises to be a whole new, old sensation. Random House Publishing, printed in the USA.

Here’s a quick post to share some completely wonderful book publishing news. On July 28th, 2015, Random House has plans to publish a brand-new, never seen before, children’s book by Dr. Seuss!! Yes, you read that right, they’re coming out with a never-ever-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one’s mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure!

It’s title will be, “What Pet Should I Get?”. The basic story shares what happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one! The tale captures a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it!

Just as a side note we should mention that Chip Kidd actually has nothing to do with the design of this book, we just LOVE Dr. Seuss, ha!
