The Tote Bag Book


 

Although some of us already have more tote bags in our possession than we will ever require, we still can’t resist collecting them. The fact is, they don’t take up much space, they don’t cost much (or are giveaways), and they are more sustainable shopping partners than plastic or paper options. Tote bags also serve as a surrogate T-shirt, and let you express your mood through whatever design you pick that day. The Tote Bag, a new book by the London-based illustrator and designer Jitesh Patel, was inspired by Patel’s blog dedicated to cutting-edge tote bag design. Featuring the work of more than 120 designers and illustrators, the book seduces its prey through its packaging — it is actually wrapped in its very own tote bag. Published by Laurence King PublishingThe Tote Bag is a 160 page paperback available for $24.95. In the U.S., you can order a copy through Chronicle Books.
