Book Cover Designer Chip Kidd and the Importance of Good Book Covers – As Seen on

What?!  You mean you should judge a book by its cover?  I know, my mother hammered that into my head too.  Then again, my mom wasn’t an author, publisher, agent or book reviewer.  According to book cover designer czar, Chip Kidd, it is, always was and will continue to be, all about the book cover.

Need to hear more about the importance of a book cover?  Listen to the world famous book cover designer — Chip Kidd.  He gave a TED Talk in earlier this month.  It’s funny and entertaining and well worth the time.

From TED’s website — “Chip Kidd doesn’t judge books by their cover, he creates covers that embody the book — and he does it with a wicked sense of humor. In one of the funniest talks from TED2012, he shows the art and deep thought of his cover designs.”

By the way, we’re getting ready to launch  This site will be dedicated to designing and creating Kiss Ass book cover designs.
