Reviews

"a handsome little brick-size book" New York Magazine.com

"Now he is launching a new book, Milton Glaser Posters, celebrating 427 examples of his poster designs from 1965 to 2017. We spoke to Milton about his career so far, his views on the changing industry and why ethics in design is more important than ever." Creative Boom

"It's this kind of mildly sardonic, self-deprecating commentary that makes Milton Glaser Posters an enjoyable read, though, of course, we're here for the pictures, which range from posters for Stevie Wonder and Mahalia Jackson concerts and the Newport Jazz Festival to an advert for dog food." Esquire, UK

"Milton Glaser's depiction of blind justice, designed in 1987 to commemorate the bicentennial of the American Constitution, comes Milton Glaser Posters with "427 examples from 1965 to 2017"" Times Literary Supplement

"Since 1965, Milton Glaser has presented a prolific amount of work that has made him widely recognized as one the most honored graphic designer in his era. Glaser has designed more than 500 posters of which portray his sophisticated design and creativity.

Some his most famous works include his 1967 Bob Dylan's poster for Columbia Records, and his series celebrating "I New York." In this book, Glaser provides commentary on his influences while creating each poster. In addition, he include sketches of his original works that allow the viewer to have an insight into his creative process." Daily Beast

"A collection of more than 450 Milton Glaser posters will be showcased in a book celebrating his hugely iconic work. The book includes all of his poster designs accompanied by Milton's own commentary describing his creative process and visual expression, creating an insightful journey through the popular culture of half a century. Definitely a book for the coffee table or display shelf for any designers and illustrators." Digital Arts

"Whether Glaser's work invokes an emotional response in its audience or not is for each individual reader to decide - but ultimately, he says he hopes his new book will bridge that gap between informing and educating, and providing a source of enjoyment and entertainment for his readers. "I hope people will derive a sense of happiness from it," he says. "I want it to be pleasurable to read, both in an analytical sense, and in just seeing things that are harmonious, beautiful and worthy of repetition. I hope the book has duration, and can be interpreted differently over and over again." Design Week

"Cave paintings, thinks Milton Glaser, are the earliest posters. "Those images create reactions today with the same potency they must have had when they were made. It's extraordinary that this form of communication has existed all through history." The celebrated US graphic designer - whose work includes the I Heart NY design and a psychedelic 1967 poster of Bob Dylan - has created countless posters, 450 of which are collected in a new book. Some have become emblematic of a certain time and place, while others have taken on a life of their own: "People send me the strangest examples of 'I Heart'," he says, "for example, in a hut in a small African village." A good poster, he says, needs to communicate effectively, be persuasive, and attract attention. But there's a distinction between graphic design and art: " graphic design is now basically an adjunct of capitalism. Art is a means of examining reality freshly with open eyes."" The Observer New Review

"Yet in the hands of a master, there is interplay between the commercial aims of design and the illuminative possibilities of art, and this can readily be seen in Glaser's posters, of which he has made more than 450 since 1965. In celebration, Abrams will release Milton Glaser Posters on March 27, an incredible compendium of poster art at its best." AnOther

"You may or may not know Mr Milton Glaser's name, but you will certainly know his work. I NY, that iconic, simple design that has been appropriated countless times? That was Mr Glaser. The graphic psychedelic poster of Mr Bob Dylan with flames of colour bursting from his head, one of the defining images of the late 1960s? Mr Glaser again. New York Magazine? Mr Glaser co-founded it. A wildly prolific graphic designer, the New York native has created some of the best-known commercial imagery ever, and is one of the most revered names in the design industry. Mr Glaser, 88, hasn't retired and continues to produce work today. Now, he has released a retrospective book documenting some of his most fascinating poster work." Mr Porter
