The Book Jacket Art of Chip Kidd
Cuba Libre (1998)
"Elmore Leonard is synonymous with cool, so how could I refuse the opportunity to redesign all of his books? I took on the welcome task of taking Dutch (as he is known to his friends) into a new visual direction, starting with Cuba Libre. That title was something of an anomaly for him...I devised a scheme using distressed type culled from current New York Post headlines, which I could then apply to his more contemporary titles."
