There’s been a lot of buzz online this past week about a newly discovered Mickey Mouse short, but it’s not anyhting made by the Disney studio. It’s the resurfacing of the rare 1968 short Mickey Mouse in Vietnam produced by painter W. Lee Savage and graphic designer Milton Glaser.
The one-minute short isn’t technically accomplished, but manages to make a powerful and subversive statement through the manipulation of the famed graphic icon. Within seconds of arriving in Vietnam, Mickey Mouse—that all-American symbol of goodness and positivity—is destroyed, and along with it, the myth of American moral superiority.
I love seeing animation artists included in the company of illustrators and designers like Fuchs and Glaser. The artwork for animated films, at its basic core, serves the same purpose as work created by these other artists in its need to communicate ideas to the audience through visual means.
Available March 14, we are thrilled to publish Milton Glaser’s new book, In Search of The Miraculous or One Thing Leads to Another, a unique and lavishly illustrated volume based on his exhibit of the same name, which unveiled in 2010 at the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). Borne from a phrase that has persisted in Glaser’s memory for many years, In Search of the Miraculous offers a
Overlook author and graphic design legend Milton Glaser has launched a brand new website, MiltonGlaserWorks.com. An e-commerce-enabled companion to the designer's online home base, MiltonGlaser.com, the new site offers signed editions of Glaser's books and other works, including posters and a new range of giclée prints of assorted musicians and William Shakespeare. . . . Glaser fans should also be on the lookout for the release of the documentary Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight. Directed by Wendy Keys and featuring Overlook Publisher Peter Mayer in a supporting role, the film has been making the festival rounds and premieres on May 22 at New York's Cinema Village.
The life and work of Milton Glaser is the subject of a lengthy profile in Chronogram. Reporter Lynn Woods talked to the "graphic guru/design god" last month in New York. Milton's latest book is the highly provocative Drawing is Thinking, and the documentary "To Inform and Delight" is currently in theaters across the country. Make no mistake about it: We ♥ Milton Glaser!
Milton Glaser, legendary designer and beloved Overlook author, was awarded the National Medal of Arts on February 25. The award was presented by President Obama in the East Room of The White House. Milton was the first designer to receive this honor. In addition to Milton, the recipients included Bob Dylan, Clint Eastwood, Maya Lin, Rita Moreno, Jessye Norman, Joseph P. Riley, Jr., Frank Stella, Michael Tilson Thomas, and John Williams.
To many, Milton Glaser is the embodiment of American graphic design during the latter half of this century. Born in 1929, Glaser was educated at the High School of Music and Art and the Cooper Union art school in New York and, via a Fulbright Scholarship, the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, Italy. He co-founded the revolutionary Pushpin Studios in 1954, founded New York Magazine with Clay Felker in 1968, established Milton Glaser, Inc. in 1974, and teamed with Walter Bernard in 1983 to form the publication design firm WBMG. Throughout his career, Glaser has been a prolific creator of posters and prints. His artwork has been featured in exhibits worldwide, including one-man shows at both the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His work is in the permanent collections of many museums. Glaser also is a renowned graphic and architectural designer with a body of work ranging from the iconic logo to complete graphic and decorative programs for the restaurants in the World Trade Center in New York. Among many awards throughout the years, he received the 2004 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, for his profound and meaningful long-term contribution to the contemporary practice of design.
His three Overlook books include Graphic Design, Art is Work, and Drawing is Thinking.
Milton Glaser, who has been called the "most influential graphic designer of the era," will discuss the work on his upcoming exhibition at the AIGA in New York in this webinar, while exploring the backstory, context, and the challenges and interconnections of influence. Learn more and register...
First, congratulations to yesterday's winner, CollenFL, who won a set of Penny Vincenzi's best novels. Thank you again for your enthusiasm! We're so excited for our wonderful books to be finding new homes and, hopefully, new fans.
Today's contest is one we've been thinking about for quite some time. While many outside the art and design world might not know Milton Glaser by name, you've definitely seen his work--it includes the iconic "I Heart NY" logo as well as DC Comics' old logo the "DC Bullet," and the logo for the delicious and quirky Brooklyn Brewery. He co-founded New York magazine and last year was awarded the National Medal of the Arts.
So you know Milton Glaser is a living legend. He's also written a number of books. DRAWING IS THINKING is perhaps our favorite--it's a deeply personal look at how the mind works in visually representing reality. More about the book:
Based on his view that all art has its origin in the impulse both to create and, visually, to do this by drawing, he has designed a book that powerfully delineates this position. In Drawing is Thinking, the drawings depicted are meant to be experienced sequentially, so that the reader or viewer not only follows Glaser through these pages, but comes to inhabit his mind. The drawings represent a sweeping range of subject matter taken from the full range of a reflective master's career. They represent the author's commitment to the fundamental idea that drawing is not simply a way to represent reality, but, as the title suggests, a way to understand and experience the world.
This beautiful book can be appreciated both by artists and designers familiar with Glaser's work and by anyone interested in the beauty of the world around them. We'll be giving away THREE AUTOGRAPHED COPIES as the perfect holiday gift for yourself or for someone very special.
We still have eight giveaways to go, plus a very special BONUS giveaway related to the upcoming film adaptation of TRUE GRIT. Check back daily for more! Hope you're enjoying the holiday season--and these giveaways--as much as we are!

Milton Glaser'sDrawing is Thinking is featured in "The Reading Room" column in the February issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. The full-page is illustrated with Glaser's pen and ink drawing from 2000, "Portrait Study." The images in Drawing is Thinkingrepresent a sweeping range of subject matter taken from the full range of Milton Glaser's legendary career. They represent the author's commitment to the fundamental idea that drawing is not simply a way to represent reality, but, as the title suggests, a way to understand and experience the world.
Milton Glaser's provocative new book Drawing is Thinkingis reviewed by Creative Contact: "Twenty-five years after the publication of Milton Glaser: Graphic Design, the longest-selling design book in publishing history, Glaser took a stance with Art Is Work, a collection of his design work that shunned the conceptional and steered toward the process; brilliantly displayed in sequences showing the path a design takes from infancy to completion. In Drawing is Thinking, the follow up to Art is Work, the focus is, somewhat, back on the process, linking the physical act of drawing to the unconscious of the artist, akin to the act of automatic drawing the Surrealist artists practiced at their epoch. Glaser sees it, in the introduction stuffed into the beginning of this “meditation,” as an approach to “looking at the world without judgment and allowing what is in front of us to become understandable. Art, in fact, may be the best way we have to experience truth or what is real.” He seeks truth not only through drawing, but narrative as well. While most retrospective works focus on a chronological or stylistic time-line, Glaser would rather organize his work here rather randomly; letting narrative, or rather, multiple narratives, form and branch off in directions toward the unknown. And it works. In his apparent scrap-book method he denies giving us a narrative to follow, because he would be foolish to pretend he knew what said narrative was. Following his theory of meditation through assemblage of work, there is no reason why his narrative needs to be the same as ours. If art can be interpreted in any number of ways, why should the artist bother laying down the official set of blueprints for us to track when we can draft our own? Well, if the last sentence seems a tad bit naive, don’t be nervous. I don’t fully believe it myself. Much of conceptional art is built on this kind of foundation, and I agree that it can be helpful, even essential at times. And in a way, if Glaser did not let us know in the beginning that he wanted us to forge our own path through the terrain that followed, who’s to say we would have gone along and done it ourselves? He gives us a formula to follow, and it so happens to be that the formula is open ended. But these qualms, in hindsight, seem unnecessary: I found the path I followed a rather enjoyable one, unexpectedly. As a fan of Glaser’s design work, I was not ready for what seemed at first sight a glorified sketchbook, and what became, at the finish line, a deep exploration into the mind of one of our greatest artistic minds."
