Interesting question - More interesting is to study what happens to culture and artistic work when it meets new  media.

I work with the traditional art of storytelling, and study what happens when it´s performed in new digital media.

Chip Kidd: Designing books is no laughing matter. OK, it is.

Chip Kidd doesn’t judge books by their cover, he creates covers that embody the book -- and he does it with a wicked sense of humor. In one of the funniest talks from TED2012, he shows the art and deep thought of his cover designs.

How great marketers tell stories

How great marketers tell stories | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Former P&G marketing chief Jim Stengel says that the best companies tell two types of stories to build strong and enduring brands."

 

"The Brand Ideal, or Purpose, of Louisville Slugger is "to make players great." That statement could sound like puffery, except that the stories surrounding the brand make it plain and true. This is the case for most Ideal-driven businesses. Stories make the Ideal wheel spin.

 

Much has been written about the importance of storytelling in marketing and management, but nowhere do tales have a taller order than inside the walls of Ideal-driven companies. They bring definition to the Ideal. They authenticate it and animate it. They inspire and direct its activation.  They reaffirm the course and perpetuate the narrative."

A sample contract agreement between an author and a book cover designer | Litteris | Scoop.it
I’m not a fan of contracts (or anything binding, or closing doors, or other A-personality stuff). I avoid extra, non-essential work if I can help it. And since I know I will always over deliver, contracts seem like overkill to me.

How to Write the Perfect First Page

How to Write the Perfect First Page | Litteris | Scoop.it

Recently I attended a workshop called “American Author” inspired by American Idol. People anonymously submitted the first pages of their novels, which were read aloud to a panel of editors and agents. The panel then provided their immediate, brutally honest feedback for all to hear.

Given my past post on how to write the perfect first page, I thought it was important to add to it by sharing what I learned from hearing the perspective of people who have read hundreds, if not thousands, of first pages.
