You may not know CHIP KIDD's name, but you have undoubtedly seen this maverick graphic designer's work. Kidd (right) has created countless unforgettable book covers, including David Sedaris' Naked, featuring a pair of white jockey shorts, as well as the dinosaur silhouette for Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park. Often incorporating arresting collisions of bold, kinetic text and vintage images, Kidd has made book design unexpectedly hip and sexy. The artist is also a design critic, having been published in both Vanity Fair and the New York Times. An undeniable hot ticket, Kidd appears at Atlanta's Portfolio Center NOV. 9 to deliver a talk called "A Number of People." $8-$20. 6:30 p.m. Los Angeles Room, 125 Bennett St. 404-351-5055.
