Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Art Is Work, a glorious retrospective of Milton Glaser, is a unique voyage into the mind of an original, multitalented artist. Reproductions of Glaser's remarkable posters, prints, book covers, and other works appear next to commentary from Glaser describing the creative process that led to the finished piece. Glaser's imaginative commentary shines a light on how ideas are conceived, shaped, and finally translated into various media. The sheer diversity of Glaser's work -- from album covers to ketchup labels to restaurant interiors -- allows him to discuss a wide range of issues confronting contemporary artists and designers, including the importance of functionality and the pressures of working with a demanding client. Art Is Work is available in a deluxe edition that is slipcased, signed, and numbered, and includes a silk-screen print that is also signed and numbered.
