Described as "the closest thing to a rock star" in graphic design today (USA Today), Chip Kidd is universally recognized as an American master of contemporary book design. At the forefront of a revolution in publishing, Kidd's iconic covers, with their inventive marriage of type and found images, have influenced an entire generation of design practitioners in many fields.Chip Kidd: Book One collects all of his book covers and designs for the first time, as well as hundreds of developmental sketches and concepts-annotated by Kidd and by many of the best-selling authors he's worked with over the years. The result is an important contribution to the design canon today as well as a visually dazzling (and often hilarious) insider's look at the design and publishing process.The book also showcases Kidd's work with comics and graphic novels, including his collaborations with leading artists and writers in the field. Featured are projects for DC Comics, including Batman and Superman, as well as Kidd's award-winning exploration of the art of Charles M. Schulz.

It seems unusual when a book designer gets co-author status, but that’s been the case with two of my recent reads -- Caz Hildebrand’s The Geometry of Pasta and Chip Kidd’s True Prep. So when I noticed Chip Kidd: Book One (1986-2006), a collection of book covers he’s designed at Knopf, I snagged it through inter-library loan.

Kidd joined Knopf when Robert Gottlieb departed for The New Yorker and Sonny Mehta arrived. He writes that he mostly designs hardcovers because they’re enduring and he can wonder, “What will something I work on look like in [x] years?” And he likes that “the luxury [of a hardcover] extends to the intellect as well as the wallet.” (I quite agree.)

In an Introduction, John Updike wrote that “Kidd reads the books he designs for and locates a disquieting image close to the narrative’s dark, beating heart.” This big coffee-table book has easily a thousand of those designs (including rejections) plus notes about their backstories and evolution, and often authors’ comments. The covers are diverse and memorable -- I’ve seen a lot of them, I’ve owned and/or read many of the books, and now I’ve added some new ones to my wishlist. ( )

Chip Kidd is a graphic designer. If you've seen a book cover at Borders and gone "Ooh!" in the past ten or fifteen years, Chip Kidd is likely the guy who impressed you. Chip Kidd: Book One is a large and lovely collection of his work. I don't have a lot more to say about the book. It's beautiful, visually smart. It's the kind of book that makes me want to write a whole shelf of novels, just so Chip Kidd can design covers for them. He's that good.

Absolutely stellar!

Chip Kidd's star has been on the rise for a few years now. You can't walk down an isle of fiction without seeing his handywork catching your eye.

Kidd has achieved that place that all cover designers long to be. It's a lofty one where you are given enough room to really try some unorthodox things. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.

This book covers Kidd's work up until 2005. It's fun to read about the process of putting these covers together. And even more fun to read the responses from the authors he was designing for. It's no surprise how many authors hate their covers initially, only to come around and see the brillance of the designs once they see their book pop off the shelf when compared to others.

This is one of the few books Kidd has designed in and out, so it's a fun page turner. Lots of juicy layout and gorgeous photos.

Highly recommended for those with an interest in book design. ( )
