Chip Kidd on his 1Q84 design
I find Haruki Murakami too repetitive in theme and too laboured in execution, and after an interest in some earlier books – when I and he were younger – I find I simply can't buy in to his fantasy world, so personally I won't be getting my copy 1Q84. (I feel so lonely!) But the book gets the Chip Kidd treatment (Chip's great work has given added value to many manga at Vertical, apart from his 25+ years at Knopf. See a small selection here.) Above is a Knopf video of Chip explaining the design.
