The late designer Milton Glaser once said, "The most overused word, creativity, should in fact be described as discovery." This revealing peek inside Glaser's never-before-published journals offers uncommon insight into his design process. Through notes, drawings, and sketches from his home in New York City and his travels throughout Italy, France, and Spain, Glaser inspires the reader to find meaning in even the smallest details: a cat, a stage set, a portrait, a building—all are significant. "The joyfulness of art is discovering the connections themselves," Glaser wrote. A brief introduction by Glaser and an interview conducted by Jeremy Elias, originally printed in the New York Times, are included.
