4 Comments on “Poppy Gives Thanks”
The Poppy Records concert at Carnegie Hall was in 1969, not in 1968, like Milton Glaser’s website claims. In 1968, the 26th of November fell on a Tuesday.
Inspector Hardwig strikes again! I have tried a few times to find the 1967 poster, without success (so far).
Looks like F37 no longer has a public page for Glaser Stencil, but it does show up via Google (with the fonts not rendering). Their copy also now says the first use was in 1969.
But in Milton Glaser’s Posters book, he shows a poster/mailer for New York’s Art Directors Club’s 13th Annual Communications Conference from 1968. In the book’s caption, Milton writes: “The typeface is one I’d designed earlier, called Glaser Stencil Light”.
This would predate the Poppy Gives Thanks poster by a year. Not sure if that makes it the first use but it’s earlier.
That’s great information, thank you!
F37 turned their digital Glaser Stencil into a variable font and moved it to their Playground section.
