”Chip Kidd, who designs book covers for Alfred A. Knopf, told me that [Lena Dunhams new book] appears to him to be ‘from around 1972.’ It’s not a compliment. ‘For me it’s sort of like everything that I react against when I’m designing a book cover,’ Kidd said. ‘I just don’t understand why they would go with this route.’ He added that, for a book like Dunham’s, he would think, ‘you would want to send the message that it’s fresh, uncharted territory, and I just don’t get that from this.’”
