You can learn a lot about a person from the contents of their bag. And while it's an invasion of privacy to actually go through someone's things (don't do that, please), Broad City's Abbi Jacobson draws what she imagines famous people, both real and imaginary, carry around with them in her new book, Carry This Book.

Each spread in Carry This Book is a flat lay of things that everyone from Willy Wonka to Ruth Bader Ginsburg might have with them on a daily basis. It's part fantasy, part stars, they're just like us... because everyone has a coffee punch card and a to-do list to buy toilet paper.

Besides musing on Charles & Ray Eames' evenly split chore list and what folders are on Kanye's USB drive, Jacobson also gives us a peek into her Broad City character's own bag (hint: there's a stack of very familiar coupons). It's a lot like a reverse Where's Waldo for grownups.

Carry This Book is out now.
