National Design Awards 07

I first came across this rather engaging book cover from Chip Kidd, later discovering it to be one of the Pulitzer Book Prize Winners this year and helped Kidd to claim the Communications Award at the National Design Awards. It's a great example as to how the thoughtful design of a book cover can both communicate clearly the type/topic of the book whilst creating intrigue.

"Kidd’s distinctive design approach does not adhere to a particular style but is rather guided by the content of each book and the discovery of surprising images and relationships that compel the reader to look inside". The site Good Is Dead exhibits more of his work.
