A few weeks ago, I had the extreme pleasure of attending an exhibition and opening reception for book cover designer (extraordinaire) Chip Kidd at the Cooper Union in NY (in conjunction with the release of his monongraph, Book One). There I saw a 20-year retrospective of his work at Knopf. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been supplying Chip with cover art for the release of James Ellroy’s back catalog at Vintage. He used RED on the cover of BLOOD ON THE MOON–the first release. Since then, I’ve read the manuscripts and created new images for (so far) BECAUSE THE NIGHT and SUICIDE HILL (still in progress). Look for the first two covers on page 91 of Chip’s book! It doesn’t get any more fun than this my friends!
