About this Item

"Art is Work, lavishly illustrated with more than 500 full-color reproductions, is a comprehensive overview of legendary designer Milton Glaser's rich and varied oeuvre, a dazzling array of iconic work on well-known products, ranging from newspapers and magazines to toys, textiles, restaurant interiors, supermarkets, posters, album covers, and much, much more. An illuminating text accompanying these images offers a rare glimpse into his personal artistic philosophy and working methods. Art is Work reflects Milton Glaser's abundant gifts and is a fitting manifestation itself of the talents of one of the powerful and creative forces in design today. / Milton Glaser is the recipient of many awards from such organizations as the American Institute of Architects and the Society of Arts in England. His work has been the subject of exhibitions around the world.". Bookseller Inventory # 001474
