i had such high hopes — 8 years ago
this book was more style than substance. i love chip kidd as a designer but as a wrtier, he was more about the looks than the content. i could totally relate to the shenanigans of the first year of art school but the conclusion of the book was poorly planned. i suspect the book was more autobiographical than fictional.
if you went to art school, the vignettes of school life will be familiar and nostalgic. if you didn’t go to art school, i say skip this book as it will probably not make much sense or be very interesting to you.
