Chip Kidd (GalleyCat)The Society of Illustrators is hosting an exhibit called “Batman Black and White: The Sketch Covers.” The pieces came from the collection of famed book designer Chip Kidd.

The opening reception will take place on Oct. 7. The closing date is Nov. 7.

Here’s more from the organization’s website: “Based on the hugely-popular 1996 publication, each issue of Batman: Black and White features several short-stories written and drawn by top comic writers and artists. In the first Issue, released on Sept. 4 of 2013, Chip Kidd’s short-story titled ‘Don’t Know Where, Don’t Know When’ (co- written by Michael Cho) was featured, and the issue also included a blank variant cover. This blank cover overlap allowed fans to seek out original sketches by their favorite artists, and became a popular collectable.”
