announcedChicago Tribune

Kidd, who has been hailed as "the closest thing to a graphic design rock star" by USA Today, is an associate art director at the Alfred A. Knopf publishing imprint. His designs have graced the covers of works by Cormac McCarthy, Michael Crichton, Augusten Burroughs, David Sedaris and John Updike. Kidd's work with books extends beyond the covers and into the pages as well. His first novel, The Cheese Monkeys, was a New York Times bestseller.
