Remarkable Book Cover Designs by Chip Kidd

I'm going to admit that the reason I first read Michael Chrichton's Jurrasic Park in the seventh grade was all because of my fascination with dinosaurs and the really cool skeletal T-Rex book cover design.  10 years past that, I now find out that it was in fact none other than Chip Kidd, the avid graphic designer and writer responsible for a plethora of other great book covers.  His design work for Knopf and Pantheon, imprints of Random House, have contributed greatly to book cover packaging over the past few decades.  Really loving the illustrations and side text bars in his work.
