comments: a few weeks ago, i was lucky enough to hear chip kidd speak at columbia college in chicago. his work as a graphic designer is compelling. he has been incredibly prolific in the number and quality of book cover designs he has created for knopf. hearing the thought process behind his work was riveting. all of that would have been plenty but he is also such a funny, funny guy. my side hurt for days after that lecture. love it when that happens.
