Designer/Writer Chip Kidd (Batman: Death by Design) opens a gallery exhibition featuring an extraordinary selection of original Batman drawings assembled from his collection on Wednesday October 7, 2015.
In 2013, DC Comics released a brand-new six-issue revival of the legendary Batman: Black and White series. Based on the hugely-popular 1996 publication, each issue of Batman: Black and White features several short-stories written and drawn by top comic writers and artists. In the first Issue, released on September 4th of 2013, Chip Kidd’s short-story titled “Don’t Know Where, Don’t Know When” (co-written by Michael Cho) was featured, and the issue also included a blank variant cover. This blank cover overlap allowed fans to seek out original sketches by their favorite artists, and became a popular collectable.
Since the release of this Issue, Chip Kidd has amassed a diverse collection of covers. For the first time ever, the Society, in support of The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, is proud to display this collection in our MoCCA Gallery.
Chip Kidd is a Designer/Writer. His book cover designs for Alfred A. Knopf, where he has worked non-stop since 1986, have won numerous awards and have revolutionized American book packaging. He is the recipient of the National Design Award for Communications, as well as the Use of Photography in Design award from the International Center of Photography. He is the author of multiple books including The Cheese Monkeys and The Learners, as well as the graphic novel Batman: Death By Design (illustrated by Dave Taylor, published by DC Comics). Kidd is a distinguished and prolific lecturer and has spoken at such notable institutions as Princeton, Yale, Harvard, and RISD.
A lecture featuring Chip Kidd and special guests will take place on Tuesday, September 29th. More details at the link.
