|Milton Glaser, designer|
As Milton Glaser's blue-on-blue clock traces the hours, with only a single red line to mark them, it reveals and conceals tiny white dots across its face, allowing subtle patterns to slowly emerge. The creator of such iconic imagery as the "I heart NY" logo and the "Dylan" poster with Bob Dylan's silhouette and psychedelic hair, Glaser has also designed elegant, playful interpretations of timepieces. The Presto Clock is intended to be not so much an accurate instrument as a visual accompaniment to the passage of time. Measuring 10 inches in diameter and a barely over half an inch thick, it is presented in minimal yet attractive cardboard packaging, and includes a battery and a short, stout nail for hanging the clock on the wall.
