The time is particularly appropriate for the publication of a major work by the pre-eminent graphic artist in the United States. It is a time when his influence is being increasingly felt in other countries, a time when there is growing concern for the design environment within the larger society. In Graphic Design, Glaser undertakes not only an extraordinary wide-ranging representation of his oeuvre extending back over the last two decades but, in a personally revealing introduction, he speaks of the influences on his work, the responsibilities of the artist, the hierarchies of the traditional art world, and the role of graphic design in the area of his creative growth.
"Elegant... a book in which the text and the picture positively embrace and dance together... to read this book and to look at the pictures is almost one and the same activity."
