Missed It: Chip Kidd To Donate Archives To Penn State

The superior link-blogger Kevin Melrose has another of his fine stories and nice finds up: that the designer, editor, writer and occasional comics-maker Chip Kidd has donated his papers and archives to Penn State University, of which he is a graduate. This is a significant chunk of work for both book design and comics -- the thought that there are illustrated letters from Chris Ware out there will certainly be great news for an eventual biographer of that cartoonist.

The donation also underlines that with the wider acceptance of comics and graphic design as art forms of value that the school from which cartoonists and designers graduated are likely to be in play as places where some of the best material ends up.
