Overview

Art is Work is an overview of Milton Glaser's oeuvre and an intimate revelation of personal initiatives. With a text revealing process alongside more than 500 full-color illustrations, Glaser follows the development of his ideas through to their implementation and makes reference to alternative ideas, professional influences, and recurring themes."

"Examples of well-known projects abound - ranging from newspapers and magazines to toys, textiles, interiors, posters, and CD covers.
