Chip Kidd's design lessons

Homeschooling has been going quite well and this semester we've decided to add in some fun graphic design and web design lessons.

We're pretty excited.

This obviously meant we needed to read Chip Kidd's GO: A Kidd's Guide to Graphic Design. In a kind of wonderful way, the wait list at the library was insane and Amazon was sold out, so we headed down to Mockingbird Books and snagged the last copy they had. Mockingbird was one of the first places I visited when I moved to Seattle and it is just the most perfectly small children's bookstore. (The lesson here is clearly to support your local bookstore first and use megasources as a backup.)

I plan to post a review once we devour this thing, but in the meantime, enjoy the book trailer for GO:

I also recommend Kidd's TED Talk, one of my TED faves for obvious reasons.

I enjoyed "The Cheese Monkeys", so I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this new book. Look forward to your review!
