Milton Glaser: Inspiration and Process in Design

Availability: In stock

The late designer Milton Glaser once said, "The most overused word, creativity, should in fact be described as discovery." This revealing peek inside Glaser's never-before-published journals offers uncommon insight into his design process.

Through notes, drawings, and sketches from his home in New York City and his travels throughout Italy, France, and Spain, Glaser inspires the reader to find meaning in even the smallest details: a cat, a stage set, a portrait, a building—all are significant. A brief introduction by Glaser and an interview conducted by Jeremy Elias, originally printed in the New York Times, are included.

Milton Glaser co-founded Push Pin Studios with Seymour Chwast in 1954 and New York magazine in 1968. From his psychedelic silhouette of Bob Dylan, to the I Love New York logo, Milton’s works have been pivotal in defining American visual culture.
