An original advertising poster for Rotring pens and ink by legendary New York designer Milton Glaser. This rare poster was commissioned by Hartley Reece & Company ‘the sole distributors of rotring products in the UK’. Glaser, who passed away in 2020, was best known for his iconic I Love New York logo (1977), the psychedelic Bob Dylan poster (1966), and the logos for DC Comics, Stony Brook University, and Brooklyn Brewery. In 2004, Glaser won a National Design Award Lifetime Achievement from the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum for his profound and meaningful long-term contributions to the contemporary practice of design. In 2009, he was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama - the first graphic designer to have received this award.
