(Preface) 'Chip Kidd is best known for his book jacket designs which in the last ten years have been credited with spawning a revolution in the art of the book cover in America. Master of the graphic non-sequitur, Kidd has designed covers for books by authors such as John Updike, Dean Koontz, Michael Crichton, Peter Carey and William Boyd that engage the readers’ intelligence as well as imagination. Since graduating from Pennsylvania State University in 1986, he has worked almost exclusively for Alfred A. Knopf, designing close to 2,000 book covers. Often acting as archivist, editor, art director, and writer, Kidd has also created a number of illustrated books on various cartoon characters, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Plastic Man and the Peanuts gang. His first novel, The Cheese Monkeys was published in 2001.'
