CBS News Sunday Morning did a very nice segment yesterday about book covers, including insight into the design/marketing process, some talk about the impact of eBooks on cover design, and commentary from Peter Mendelsund and Chip Kidd. I wish they’d gone a little deeper into exactly how the design process might change when eBooks increase in popularity, but I suppose that’s a discussion for another audience.
Thanks to everyone who emailed and tweeted the link to me—I wouldn’t have seen the segment otherwise. It was fun to see a couple of my covers on screen (if only for a second or two!), as well as the work of several of my colleagues.
