1 Birnbach, Lisa The Official Preppy Handbook
New York Workman Pub Co 1981 0894801406 / 9780894801402 19th Printing Softcover Very Good Octavo 
224pp. Plaid, pictorial cover. black and white photos throughout. one corner has light wear otherwise a near fine, unmarked copy. A tongue-in-cheek humor reference guide, The Handbook exposed preppy culture to the masses, and helped to democratize the preppy subculture. Prior to the book, primarily only wealthy WASP elites adopted the preppy subculture. From the 1920s, WASPs dominated American universities, and preppy fashion was traditionally worn on university campuses.[18] However, as universities became less exclusive as a result of economic and cultural shifts, preppiness as a subculture became less exclusive. Preppy fashion adopted new nuances, and preppy culture has become more inclusive.
