TIME – Chip Kidd Judges 6 Books By Their Covers

  • date
  • June 14, 2015

detective-comics-27-time

 

Over at the always insightful TIME Magazine website (Yes, in today’s digital world TIME still exists!) a reporter named Sarah Begley ran a short interview with Knopf Book designer Chip Kidd about a few of his favorite book covers of all time and asked him, “to judge them”. Of course this question was meant to be tied into Chip’s latest book titled, “Judge This (TED Books)” that just came out and was published by Simon & Schuster as a part of their TED TALK Book Series.

As kind of a joke for this post I made a parody graphic of one of the famous covers that Chip talks about in the TIME interview, Detective Comics #27, which we all know as the very first appearance of the Batman!

To see other book covers he chose and to read Sarah Begley’s article on Chip Kidd, please CLICK HERE!
