    One thought on “In Search of the Miraculous: Or, One Thing Leads to Another”

    1. He is an icon but only people at the top of their field can get away with selling a book like this. The title was very provocative and inviting to me. It was a gift from a generous friend who knows how much I admire Milton Glaser. I “read” this in under an hour and maybe I am missing something but the only thing I came away with was that Milton Glaser is a great artist and has done some incredible work in his career beyond logos and posters. But I already knew that. No mind altering epiphani [...]

    2. In Search of the Miraculous: Or, One Thing Leads to Another is a quick read. The nature of short books is that one assumes that they cannot possibly pass any concepts onto the reader. Glaser manages to impart wisdom and show inspiring works in these short 90 pages. This lovely book will probably take you a mere twenty minutes to read, but, if you're like me, you'll continue picking it up and flipping through it, finding wisdom in both his words and works.

    3. Interesting, I read it in just a few minutes. I didn't know who Milton Glaser was before picking up this book, and I'm not sure I have any better idea now, after reading this. The images of the artist are intriguing, but not my style. I like the section of work rejected by clients. Much revolves around "the interval between looking and seeing is one of communication's most profound issues".

    4. I enjoyed the openness & insight provided into one man's creative process. He could've easily doubled the length of this quick read with additional comments, but perhaps the brevity is all the inspiration we need.

    5. "Kundalini yoga is all about releasing the serpent energy that resides at the base of the spine."interesting
