In Search of the Miraculous: Or, One Thing Leads to Another Kindle Edition
"To younger graphic designers, Glaser has the stature of Marlo n Brando in Hollywood . . . He appears to have thought more deeply about what he makes than many lionized by the contemporary art world and its market." — The San Francisco Chronicle
"In Search of the Miraculous aptly captures the tension involved in reconciling the artist's aspirations to do great work and the client's objectives. This book eloquently, articulately, and with great panache, and provocation, illuminates the extraordinary outcomes that emerge when the artistic process miraculously works." — New York Journal of Books
"A self-analysis of his creative process, this elegantly designed, uncharacteristically thin volume is arguably his proudest accomplishment." — The Atlantic --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the only design I enjoyed in this book was the carpet he designed for The School of Visual Design Theater. And what was up with the Shakespeare project? The final pieces were neither good illustration nor interesting design. And why does Glaser use red and green together so much? His use of color in this book seemed incredibly cliché to me. Pass on this one unless you can buy it for $.27 like I did.
It contains an introduction explaining who he is, designs and comments by Glaser, an interesting section of designs that clients did not like. Although I wish he would have told us, why they didn't. In most cases the designs are shown and then the actual results of what it looked like in completed form.
It is a small book, so many of the pictures are small; but it is a book that would interest graphic designers and fans of Milton Glaser.
