American graphic designer Milton Glaser, was best known for his 1975 Bob Dylan poster, and the 1977 IloveNY icon. He also founded New York Magazine with Clay Felker in 1968.

Glazer created the most-loved of all of DC Comics myriad logos, the “bullet logo,” in 1977.

royal pains

I thoroughly enjoyed the Downton Abby movie. Set in 1927, the Crawley household goes into a frenzy to make sure everything is absolutely perfect for a visit by King George V and Queen Mary. It reminded me of my own brushes with royalty, directing their great granddaughter-in-law Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York for several Weight Watchers magazine covers.

pink think!

I finally took a minute to check out Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color at the Museum at FIT. This thoughtful exhibit features approximately 80 pink ensembles from the 18th century to the present.

The exhibit touches on the association of the color pink and gender. Apparently, as late as the 1920s, public opinion was divided as to whether pink was for boys or for girls. The final decision seems to have been influenced by publicity surrounding millionaire Henry Huntington’s purchase of the paintings Blue Boy and Pinkie.

wild card

studious steve a

Ain’t life crazy?

My wife was looking for a missing tv remote, waaaaay down between the cushions of the mid-century couch we inherited from her parents’ house, and she found this card from a vintage kid’s game.

I believe it had been there since 1965.

Still no sign of Bashful Barbie or Tiny Timothy, though.
