From Penn State Library News

“Penn State’s University Libraries have acquired the archives of the designer and writer Chip Kidd. Kidd, dubbed the “the closest thing to a rock star in graphic design” by USA Today, studied graphic design at Penn State before starting work at Alfred A. Knopf in 1986. At Knopf he has created memorable book jackets for authors such as John Updike and Michael Crichton, including the iconic cover for “Jurassic Park.” Kidd is the recipient of the National Design Award for Communications (presented by the Cooper-Hewitt/Smithsonian) and will receive the AIGA medal for lifetime achievement in April.”
