An open interview with Chip Kidd (my hero) in Berlin. For those of you who don't know Chip Kidd wrote The Cheese Monkeys (an art major's bible) and the sequel, The Learners. He's also done about a zillion book covers, some of the more famous include Michael Crichton's novels (Jurassic Park, Time Line), Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, Glamorama), and many of David Sedaris' works (Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked.) If graphic design bores you (and I hate you!) the best part is at the end. Does this accent really exist?
