Chip Kidd- Book Covers

September 21, 2012

Chip Kidd is the associate art director of Knof. He started at this company in 1986, thinking that it would only be a temporary entry-level design job but ended up being extremely successful at cover art. His book covers vary in style depending on what the book is about. He describes the covers he designs as, “A book cover is a distillation. It is a haiku of the story.” His covers make people want to look at the book, they are attention grabbing and often make you think. Image
