‘Broad City’ Star Abbi Jacobson to Release Illustrated Book This Fall


On Broad City, Abbi Jacobson plays Abbi, who is an illustrator. In real life, Abbi is also an illustrator, and now real life Abbi is creating a real life illustrated book, called Carry This Book, according to Entertainment Weekly .

Carry This Book is not a coloring book — though Abbi released one of those nearly three years ago — but is instead a book filled with drawings of what Abbi imagines to be in certain peoples’ bags, purses, whatever. (Presumably, the book would have been titled The Things They Carried if that title had not already been taken.)

Specifically, the book will answer these questions, according to EW: “How many self-tanning lotions are in Donald Trump’s weekender?” and “What’s inside Martha Stewart’s hand-knit fanny pack?”

Carry This Book is due out October 11 via Viking.
