Milton Glaser is perhaps the most celebrated graphic designer in the world. As a young man, he read a phrase that stayed with him through his life: 'In Search of the Miraculous.' One could say that all human experience is a miracle — memory, colour, taste, paintings, stars, etc. For those like Glaser, the act of making things that move the mind is perhaps the greatest aspiration to the miraculous. In this volume, he has chosen artwork, largely created by him over the last five years, to demonstrate how one concept leads to another. Through fascinating juxtapositions, readers will gain insights into Glaser's work, journeying with him as he discovers that seemingly new designs frequently come out of provocative ideas taken from the distant past.
