Robert McGinnis’ art for the new paperback edition of Neil Gaman’s American Gods.

NPR asked designer Chip Kidd recently if the art of book design was dead in this era of eBooks. Not only am I not sold on their premise that this is an era of eBooks at all, but I recently bought this edition–my fourth copy of the book, counting the eBook version–solely because I love the new cover art. So there’s my answer to the question, anyway.
