Broad City Star Abbi Jacobson To Publish Illustrated Book Titled ‘Carry This Book’


In real life, Abbi Jacobson is a much more successful artist than the Abbi she portrays on Broad City.

Viking Press has announced that Jacobson will be publishing a new illustrated book this fall titled Carry This Book.

The book will ask—and answer—what’s inside the purses and pencil cases of Oprah and Amelia Earhart. How many self-tanning lotions are in Donald Trump’s weekender? What type of protein bars is First Lady Michelle Obama packing in the clutch she brings along to official events? Jacobson will imagine and illustrate the contents of real and fictional characters’ purses and pockets.

She’s previously released two colouring books, Colour this Book: New York City and Colour this Book: San Francisco in 2013. A whole TWO years before adult colouring book trend exploded.


Carry This Book will be released on Oct. 11. You can pre-order it here.
