Milton's work is fascinating to me and one of the major reasons I decided to pursue Graphic Design as a career field.

I recently read his "Road To Hell" and found it to be a sobering read. I really enjoyed the discourse related to his "Road To Hell".

I first encountered Milton Glaser dancing the WOOWOO with Henry Wolfe at the Aspen Design Conference 1974. Since I have heard him on subjects such as Plagarism&Homage. Sins Against Design etc. in Dallas, NYC. His classes at SVA were always over subscribed, the smartest man in design.
