Chip Kidd @ Mpls Central Library!
Chip Kidd, a contemporary graphic designer most notably known for his award-winning book cover designs, will be at the Minneapolis Central Library on Feb. 27, 7pm, speaking about his own publication, The Learners, a follow-up to The Cheese Monkeys.
With The Learners, the fascinating follow-up to his national bestselling debut The Cheese Monkeys, Kidd again shows that his writing is every bit as original and memorable as his celebrated book jackets. The Leaners is a remarkable story about advertising, electro-shock torture, suicide, a giant dog, potato chips, and the Holocaust.
I encourage you all to attend this free and local event to increase your awareness of well-known professionals in your field. Chip's dramatic and appropriate use of found images and careful integration of type is iconic and is recognized worldwide; the opportunity to see and hear him speak is one not to be missed!
