Summary: Reissued now for its 25th anniversary, “Graphic Design,” perhaps the most famous book of its kind, eplores the extraordinary achievement of America’s pre-eminent graphic artist. Here Glaser undertakes not only a remarkably wide-raning representation of his oeuvre but, in a personally revealing introduction, speaks of the influences on his work, the responsibilities of the artist, the hierarchies of the traditional art world, and the role of graphic design in the area of his creative growth.
His work ranges from posters to book and record covers; from store and restaurant design to toy creations, magazine formats, and logotypes – all of which define the look of our time.
