The Book "Milton Glaser, POP"

After more than two years of researching, and collecting Milton's work, it is finally here. I got my hands on the first printed copy of the book Milton Glaser, POP, which I co-authored with Beth Kleber and Steven Heller. The book contains well over 1100 visuals, covering Milton's work from when he was a 12-year-old (1942) to 1975.

The book is published by The Monacelli Press. It is a hardcover book, 288 pages, 4.72 x 9.45 inches. It will be available on March 29th, 2023.

New York Times One-Pager Challenge

Today I came across The New York Times's One-Pager Challenge for middle and high school students.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that my illustration for The New York Times Science section is one of the examples of how professional visual artists work with the Times on various topics.

New York Review of Sex & Politics

I recently acquired this issue of the New York Review of Sex & Politics (NYRS&P) from 1969 because of this beautiful and vivid cover by Brad Holland, art directed by Steven Heller. Steven was also the co-publisher of the newspaper.

When I received this issue, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I have bonus illustrations from Brad and Steven on the inside pages.

In Steven Heller's new book Growing Up Underground: A Memoir of Counterculture New York, you can read more about his underground publishing days. It's a fun and interesting book worth reading.

Robert "Bob" Benton's Comic

Recently I acquired this unsigned comic page. It took me a little while to find out who drew it. It turned out it was a drawing of Robert "Bob" Benton. And it seems that it was drawn when he was an art director at Esquire Magazine in the mid-60s before he turned his attention to movies. 

Benton (1932) is an American screenwriter and film director. He wrote or co-wrote screenplays for Bonnie and Clyde, The Late Show, and Superman, amongst others. He also wrote and directed Places in the Heart and Kramer vs. Kramer, for which he received two Oscars.

Poster "Gog" by Ferdo Bis

I just acquired this very unusual movie poster from Croatian artist Ferdo Bis (1910-1980) for American science fiction movie Gog. It is an unusual design for a poster created in 1954.
