Front page of the Dagens Nyheter Culture section on September 22. Cover story about book design legend Chip Kidd with the headline ”In the mind of a cover boy”.
Kidd, head designer at Knopf publishers, has designed more than 1,500 covers (!), among those titles by Haruki Murakami, Bret Easton Ellis, Donna Tartt and Cormac McCarthy. In the interview (by Pontus Dahlman, not available online) Kidd states concerning e-books, “And when it comes to the experience of reading, there will always be a market for paper books. I myself am a print person. A printing ink person.”
