Milton Glaser

A color drawing of a dog by his dead owner’s feet and a typewriter.
Milton Glaser’s poster for the Olivetti Valentine typewriter.

Today I called my mother in Italy and she told me she read in a newspaper there that Milton Glaser died last night, on his 91st birthday. Mom has one of Milton’s posters that he gave to me, and I gave to her. Although she never met him she was, like many, touched by his work.

It took me a while to absorb this, but tears came as I waited in line at the farmer’s market, later in the morning.
