Preview the First Chip Kidd Pages From Neil Gaiman’s Make Good Art

HarperCollins has released an interactive preview of Make Good Art, a special chapbook of the inspiring speech Neil Gaiman gave at the May 2012 University of the Arts commencement in Philadelphia.

The book is designed by Chip Kidd and features the speech broken into sections, each interpreted by Kidd’s unique sense of design. What results isn’t merely a transcript, but a visual presentation of the ideas inherent in Gaiman’s speech. Ideas which resonate with any person struggling to create.
