The power of Milton Glaser’s eye-catching, psychedelic compositions is in their simplicity. Unlike a painting, a poster must be bold, direct, and tell a story in a short length of time. Originally created to promote the Fruit Growers Association, this poster’s visually compelling graphics were inspired by Magritte and are representative of Glaser’s colorful and geometric creations of the 1960s.
