Designer and art director Chip Kidd has changed the way book jackets are perceived–from a protective covering to a work of art. He has produced some of the most recognizable book covers of the past three decades for authors such as Haruki Murakami, David Sedaris and Donna Tartt. Kidd is the driving force behind Pantheon Graphic Novels (Art Spiegelman, Chris Ware) and the writer of the original graphic novel Batman: Death by Design. A recipient of the National Design Award for Communications, his jackets are collected in Chip Kidd: Book One, and his TED talks on cover design have been viewed more than 12 million times.

Books are available for purchase and signing. FREE; no advance tickets required.
