As a young man, SVA Acting Chairman Milton Glaser read a phrase that would influence his design work and outlook on life for years to come: “In Search of the Miraculous.” Glaser continues to celebrate his awe of the creative process in his latest book, In Search of the Miraculous or One Thing Leads to Another, which offers a meditation on the ways in which ideas evolve. By offering a sampling from his own body of work over the last five years as evidence, Glaser provides readers with a glimpse into his working process and design aesthetic by demonstrating how the most interesting ideas often come about by looking at the distant past.
