about this item

According to the Huffington Post, “Chip Kidd is the Meryl Streep of book design.” At the forefront of a revolution in publishing, Kidd’s iconic covers, in large part inspired by memorabilia and comics, have influenced an entire generation of designers, artists, and the book world.   CHIP KIDD: BOOK TWO: WORK 2007-2017 picks up where Book One left offshowcasing his impressive body of work from the past decade as well as new works yet to be seen this year. We see not just hundreds of his recent projects, but the working processes behind them—thoughts, sketches, revisions, scrapped drafts, and triumphant final versions. The bestselling authors he has worked with include the likes of Cormac McCarthy, John Updike, David Sedaris, Augusten Burroughs, Mary Roach, Oliver Sacks, and Elie Wiesel.  He has created movie art for entertainment powerhouses like J.J. Abrams, DC Comics,  Universal Pictures, and Paramount Pictures, and, he is known by geeks worldwide for his comic book and graphic novel work. Alongside striking images of his work are witty essays by Haruki Murakami, Neil Gaiman, and Orhan Pamuk that are sure to delight any bibliophile.   Throughout this ten-year retrospective, Kidd leads readers through each step of his design journey culminating in a section on how to write and art-direct a graphic novel, using as an example his New York Times-bestselling Batman: Death by Design.   Displaying the master’s passion for unconventional and forward-thinking book covers, film work, and graphic novel projects, this volume is sure to bring fresh inspirations to design aficionados, book lovers, pop-culture fanatics, comics fans, and design students.
