Book covers = Buggy whips?

NPR recently spoke to famed cover designer Chip Kidd (and the man I once had an intense conversation with over the buffet line only to realize I thought he was someone else) about book covers.

In the olden days, a reader might pick up a book because the cover was exciting, intriguing, maybe even beautiful. But in the brave new world of e-books and e-readers, the days when an artist named Chip Kidd could make us reach for a book may be gone.

Read - and listen - to the story here.
