The first details of graphic designer and novelist Chip Kidd’s new book have emerged this week. The Learners focuses on Happy, a designer who lands a job with ad agency Sketch during the 1960s. Working on an assignment to design a press ad recruiting people for an experiment at Yale’s psychology department, Happy can’t resist responding to the ad, forcing him to confront issues of identity.

Released on 6 May, publisher Schribner hopes the book will be as successful as Kidd’s celebrated book jackets.
