Today is the 500th birthday of protestant theologian John Calvin, arguable one of the most influential thinkers, writers, and pastors in the history of the church. Like all men he had his "warts", which have been well-documented (though often misunderstood). However, his writings have endured the test of time and Christianity owes him a great deal.
Great new cover from Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich.
The site touts it as "a 'real' bookstore with Amazon prices and Amazon selection." Regardless if it meets that claim, Zoomii is pretty cool. It shows bestsellers on virtual bookshelves, arranged in sections like you would see at your local bookseller, covers face-out. There is also the option of searching by title, author, etc. Nice idea.
Kimberly has started a nice new blog about her amazing work. Be sure to check it out.
I hadn't been to Chip Kidd's site (goodisdead.com)in quite some time. The celebrity king of covers has a blog (Journal), links to his writings and an extensive library of his covers (Work). The Work section can be viewed by year, title, author, or randomly. Whichever way it makes for a good site to go to for a little visual inspiration.
"...he has even had the privilege of having some of his covers show up on the New York Times bestseller list...". "He produces 100 covers a year, particularly for the New York Times bestsellers."
Ugh. No, not particularly for the New York Times bestsellers. That's the other six US designers and the Art Directors of New York who were featured speakers and participants (Kidd, de Wilde, Gall, Carson). They design bestsellers. I am lucky when that happens. Eesh.
