To celebrate Nom Wah's 100th birthday, we’ve brought three of Glaser’s illustrations—bao, siu mai, and soup dumpling—to life!
Milton Glaser, with Jerome Snyder, published The Underground Gourmet in 1967 on affordable eats in the city, which also includes a shoutout to a Chow family-run Nom Wah. You can catch this NPR interview with Glaser, Snyder, and then publisher of New York Magazine George A. Hirsh on delightful eats in New York in 1969.
Milton Glaser (b. 1929- 2020) Easily considered one of the godfathers of American classic design and poster art, Glaser was one of the founders of Push Pin Studios along with Seymour Chwast. Glaser also co-founded New York Magazine in 1968 and went on to create his own famously well regarded studio. Over the course of his career he has created many beloved posters incorporating a myriad of styles and techniques, such as his psychedelic Bob Dylan image. His most iconic contribution may be the 'I love New York' logo, with a red heart replacing the word love. Milton Glaser partnered with Poster House on many occasions, most recently including the #CombatCovidPSACampaign before his death.
