Last week, legendary graphic designers Walter Bernard and Milton Glaser sat down with Anne Quito to discuss their new book, Mag Men: Fifty Years of Making Magazines at the School for Visual Arts in New York City. In their lively and revealing conversation, Bernard and Glaser talked about the magazines and comics that inspired and fascinated them as young readers. They recounted the creation of New York magazine in the late 1960s and the fun and challenges of putting together a weekly magazine before there were computers.

After Rupert Murdoch bought New York in 1977. Glaser and Bernard quit and went on to work for a variety of other magazines, including Time, Newsweek, Paris Match, and Fortune. They discuss the challenges of breathing new life into such iconic publications as well as the joys and rewards of working in a creative and collaborative industry like magazine publishing.
