Meta-news regarding Peter Mendelsund:
I just helped him put together a holding page while he figures out what to do with his new site.
…Oh c’mon. It’s funny.
He’s got a new interview up over at Caustic Cover Critic:
Q: So how did you end up in design?
A: [...] Chip and I laugh now about our various expectations going into this meeting- he sees a LOT of work, and his feeling was: “Here’s another friend-of-a-friend whose substandard work I have to pretend to encourage” and for my part I was thinking “Book jacket design is the most ludicrous job I’ve ever heard of shy of poodle-wrangling, and who names their child Chip Kidd?”
I got my hands on the Fall 2009 Knopf Catalog, which Mendelsund designed.
