Book illustrator Chip Kidd has joined the ranks of bloggers with a guest spot at Powells.com.

Described by USA Today as 'the closest thing to a rock star in graphic design', Kidd will be blogging for the first week in June.

Kidd is writing about his working week, giving an insight into the life of one of the world's most famous book jacket designers. And eating raw chicken. Yes, really.

With postings at after 1AM it's nice to know I'm not alone, sitting up late trying to write.

Kidd's own website, complete with lovely registration marks, is located at goodisdead.com.
