Milton Glaser's DRAWING IS THINKING in Sacramento Book Review
Drawing is Thinking by Milton Glaser is reviewed in the new issue of the Sacramento Book Review: "If you don’t recognize the name of Milton Glaser, you defi itely would recognize some of his commercial work—probably the most widely known one is the I love NY logo. Drawing is Thinking is a collection of his art, none captioned or explained, just there to be experienced. The introductory interview between Glaser and Peter Mayer explores some of Glaser’s thought process and his belief that “art is aform of meditation for both maker and witness.” For the viewers of Drawing is Thinking, there are many hours of reflection ahead. The art ranges from black-and-white pencil and ink work to full color completed designs. There are several pieces that are shown in stages, from sketch to fi ished work. Usually, when you have a collection of an artist’s work, there is extensive commentary about each piece; here, you are left to ponder the what Glaser was thinking as he drew them. And, that is the point. Interesting, thoughtful, and, as he says, meditative."
