Posters by Milton Glaser (1966-1971)

Milton Glaser (born 1929) is responsible for the I ♥ NY logo, of course. But enough about that.

Milton, along with Seymour Chwast, Reynold Ruffins & Edward Sorel founded the New Youk based Push Pin Studios in 1954. He later went on to form his his own Milton Glaser Inc in 1974.

This is my collection of posters by Milton produced between 1966 & 1970. Brilliant work that lives within it's own peculiar somewhere else world. One in which illustration and design and typography spilling into each others national borders, with a rigorous abandonment.

Very nice collection!
Do you know anything more about Milton Glaser's 1971 work for 7Up, The UnCola? I own 2 poster or billboard images by him from that year but can find little else on the topic.
