Do you ever get these asks where you don’t know if it’s an ordinary ask or if it’s a request but all of a sudden it doesn’t matter anymore because you get this image of a picture and you suddenly starts laughing and wonder how sick and twisted your mind really is?

NPR asked designer Chip Kidd recently if the art of book design was dead in this era of eBooks.

So there’s my answer to the question, anyway.
