For more than fifty years Milton Glaser has designed much of the world we experience every day. His posters, books, albums, restaurants, advertisements, and so much more have made him the pre-eminent force in design in America. Drawing upon an amazing vocabulary of images and techniques, Glaser has now created his most personal book. Based on his view that all art has its origin in the impulse to create-primarily through drawing - he has designed a book that powerfully delineates this idea. In "Drawing is Thinking", the drawings depicted are meant to be experienced sequentially, so that the viewer not only follows Glaser through these pages, but comes to inhabit his mind. The drawings represent a range of subject matter taken from throughout Glaser's career.They illustrate the author's commitment to the fundamental idea that drawing is not simply a way to represent reality, but a way to understand and experience the world. Glaser's two signature books, "Graphic Design" and "Art is Work", are still in print decades after their first appearance. Each displays his work with short descriptions of how the work came about.

But in "Drawing is Thinking", the author is less interested in display and more concerned with how the mind works to visually represent reality.
