Chip Kidd Design Cover Vintage Magazine

4th Issue of Vintage Magazine with Chip Kidd Cover

Here’s some exciting news! The Quatri me Issue of VINTAGE MAGAZINE is in stores right now! No, really, it just hit the newsstands so please be sure to get your copy today. Oh, in case you’re wondering what “Quatri me” means it’s the French word for “Forth”, meaning the 4th issue (Don’t worry, I didn’t know what that word meant either, ha!).

Anyways, it’s loaded with a ton of great stories and we’re also pretty proud to say that Chip Kidd designed the exclusive cover. One aspect of the cover’s design that is kinda fun is that there are a few pieces to it that pop-up. The second photo up above should give you an idea. On the back of each piece is a sample of old vintage 1940′s linoleum tile. It’s the cool retro stuff you don’t see much of anymore and an homage to architectural design.

The topics covered in this issue include:
The Mysterious Obscurity of W.R. Burnett, Living With Books (written by Lisa Birnbach!), Interior Monologues: The Designing Life of Elsie de Wolfe, Bed Jackets: The Reveal, Chez The Novogratz, Man Ray – Marcel and Marilyn, Artist in Residence: Joseph Cornell, Victorian Dollhouses in L.A., A Tanzanian Education, A Walk Through Wytham, An Aga Saga, and The Vanishing Dining Room.

David Rakoff Half Empty Chip Kidd True Prep Book

David Rakoff, recipient of two Lambda Book Awards for Humor, insists that optimism is an irresponsible fad in his book “Half Empty.” Meanwhile, author of “The Official Preppy Handbook,” Lisa Birnbach and book jacket designer and novelist Chip Kidd team up with hilarious results to bring you “True Prep.” This lecture was presented by the Boston Book Festival and recorded on 10/16/10.


RIP Author David Rakoff
