Transcript of Typography in art

Typography in art Herb Lubalin Milton Glaser (born June 26, 1929) is a graphic designer, best known for the I Love New York logo, his “Bob Dylan” poster, the “DC bullet” logo used by DC Comics from 1977 to 2005, and the “Brooklyn Brewery” logo. He also founded New York Magazine with Clay Felker in 1968. Milton Glaser “What I do is not really typography, which I think of as an essentially mechanical means of putting characters down on a page. It's designing with letters. Aaron Burns called it, 'typographics,' and since you've got to put a name on things to make them memorable, 'typographics' is as good a name for what I do as any.”

Herb Lubalin (Herbert Frederick) – born 17. 3. 1918 in New York, USA, died 24. 5. 1981 in New York, USA. New York graphic designer, dean of American art directors since World War II, type designer since 1970. A founder of ITC, he edited its magazine U&lc until his death in 1981.
In 1984 he was posthumously awarded the TDC Medal, the award from the Type Directors Club presented to those “who have made significant contributions to the life, art, and craft of typography”.

The first illuminated manuscripts, which became popular during the Middle Ages, were hand made by monks in monasteries.
