Go: A Kidd's Guide to Graphic Design

Whether making posters for school, deciding what to hang in their rooms, or creating personalized notebook covers, kids are designers by nature. Go: A Kidd's Guide to Graphic Design, by award-winning graphic designer Chip Kidd, is a stunning introduction to design for children (not to mention savvy parents) who want to learn the secrets of visual dynamics.

Go explains not just the elements of design (form, line, color, scale, typography, and more) but how to use those elements in creative ways. Like putting the word "go" on a stop sign, Go is all about shaking things up. Children everywhere are sure to love its playful spirit.

Fore example, Kidd writes about how various colors can signify different moods, explains the difference between vertical and horizontal lines, explores the art of typography, and shows how cropping a picture can make it beautiful (or cropping it even more can make it mysterious and compelling!).
