chip kidd could have done better with the cormac mccarthy cover for 'no country for old men.' seriously: i am one who will sometimes judge a book by its cover and while i've liked kidd's stuff in the past, this time the back actually looks better than the front. there, i said it.
anyone remember being told to open a book--any book--to page 69 and finding something sexual? what the hell was up with that? and giving a girl a gum wrapper where the foil had been peeled away? i'm not lying. i was told that you give a girl what amounts to nothing more than a thin piece of tin foil and she will kiss you.
