Illustraion Paradise

I just got this beautiful present from Milton Glaser. Dante Alighieri's La Divina Commedia. What is really divine by this Trilogy is the choice of the illustrator three best illustrators of that time and three most appropriate illustrators for the job.

Moebius illustrated Paradise, Milton Glaser Purgatory and Lorenzo Mattotti. Each of them created 20 to 30 illustrations. The books were published by the Italian publisher Nuages in 1999.

Alex in Wonderland

Recently I acquired this very rare and unusual poster designed by Milton Glaser.
The poster is from the 1970's movie Alex in Wonderland directed by Paul Mazursky starring Donald Sutherland.
Plot: Young director Alex Morrison (Donald Sutherland) feels compelled to follow his recent box-office hit with another blockbuster. While mulling over this dilemma, the director's mind wanders to his past, his present, and probable future.

Graphic: 500 Designs that Matter

A few days ago I got aware of the book Graphic: 500 Designs that Matter published some time ago by Phaidon. I was extremely pleased and humbled that my design of New York Times Op-Ed pages from 1992 made the cut in 500 Designs that Matter.
