You may not know the name Chip Kidd, but you know his work.
As the most prominent book-jacket designer in the nation, Kidd has created memorable images ranging from the terrifying T-Rex on Michael Crichton's "Jurassic Park" to the stark subtlety of "The Original of Laura," Vladimir Nabokov's final, unfinished novel.
Kidd, who turned 45 Saturday, is the associate art editor for the Alfred A. Knopf publishing house. A Batman fanatic, he also writes books himself, including "Bat-manga!," about Batman comics in Japan, and the best-selling novel "The Cheese Monkeys." His partner is the poet J.D. McClatchy.
