Anne Quito talks about her process of writing and editing, Mag Men: Fifty Years of Making Magazines, a book about the glory days of magazine design as told by graphic design legends Milton Glaser and Walter Bernard. For this special live event, Walter Bernard will join Anne.
For more than fifty years, Walter Bernard and Milton Glaser have revolutionized the look of magazine journalism. In “Mag Men,” Bernard and Glaser recount their storied careers, offering insiders’ perspective on some of the most iconic design work of the twentieth century. The authors look back on and analyze some of their most important and compelling projects, from the creation of “New York” magazine to redesigns of such publications as “Time,” “Fortune,” “Paris Match,” and “The Nation,” explaining how their designs complemented a story and shaped the visual identity of a magazine.
