Milton Glaser: Graphic Design
Available again, the enduring, iconic volume showcasing the key earlycareer work and process of the godfather of modern graphic design Milton Glaser: Graphic Design, perhaps the most famous book of its kind, explores the early decades of America's preeminent graphic artist. Glaser's work ranges from the psychedelic Bob Dylan poster to book and record covers; from store and restaurant design to ZD creations; and magazine formats including New York magazine and logotypes, all of which define the look of our time. Here Glaser undertakes not only a remarkably wideranging representation of his oeuvre from the incredibly fertile early years, but, in a new introduction, speaks of the influences on his work, the responsibilities of the artist, the hierarchies of the traditional art world, and the role of graphic design in the area of his creative growth. First published in 1973, Milton Glaser: Graphic Design is an extraordinary achievement and indisputably a classic in the field.
Milton Glaser was born in 1929 in New York City. His artwork has been featured in exhibitions worldwide, including oneman shows at both the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2004 he was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Smithsonian CooperHewitt National Design Museum, and in 2009 he was awarded a National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama. His books include Graphic Design, Art is Work, Drawing is Thinking, and Milton Glaser: Posters.
