You’ve most likely seen graphic designer Milton Glaser‘s work, and may not have even realized it! Some of the designs in his vast portfolio include the I Love New York logo, the psychedelic Bob Dylan poster, and the logos for DC Comics and Brooklyn Brewery. Not to mention, he also teamed up with Clay Felker in 1968 and founded New York Magazine!
Together with Jerome Snyder, Glaser published The Underground Gourmet in 1967 on affordable eats in the city, which also includes a shoutout to a Choy family-run Nom Wah. You can catch this NYPR interview with Glaser, Snyder, and then publisher of New York Magazine George A. Hirsh on delightful eats in New York in 1969.
To celebrate our 100th birthday, we’ve brought three of Glaser’s illustrations—bao, siu mai, and soup dumpling—to life!
