Milton Glaser: New York Is About New York, 1968

Availability: In stock

Original poster from the Milton Glaser Archive. This poster was created in 1968 to announce the inaugural issue of New York magazine's new format, featuring four views of the Empire State Building. While New York magazine was originally introduced in 1963 as a Sunday supplement to the New York Herald Tribune, it wasn’t until that paper folded in 1966 that Milton Glaser and former editor Clay Felker purchased the rights to the publication and relaunched it as a weekly magazine. Its first issue hit newsstands on April 8, 1968. 

Milton Glaser (1929–2020) co-founded Push Pin Studios with Seymour Chwast in 1954 and New York magazine with Clay Felker 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.

Printed in 1968. Measures 37 x 23.25 inches. Ships rolled.
