Chip Book

Chip Kidd is a gay artist known for his comic and retro inspired art. Chip Kidd Book Two (Rizzoli, $60) is the second volume of a continuing look back at his successful career; it picks up right where book one left off — in 2007 — and follows ten more years of his eye-catching book covers, movie posters, even his own graphic novel. Offering a glimpse into the method behind his magic, the book takes readers on a creative journey that includes sketches and behind-the-scenes-photos, allowing readers to see how Kidd crafts eye-catching work like the cover of Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84. Dubbed “the Meryl Streep of book design” by the Huffington Post, Kidd has also created art for the works of John Updike, Augusten Burroughs, Mary Roach, Elie Wiesel, Cormac McCarthy, David Sedaris, and Oliver Sacks.
