    NEW YORK (AP) — Milton Glaser, the groundbreaking graphic designer who adorned Bob Dylan’s silhouette with psychedelic hair and summed up the feelings for his native New York with "I (HEART) NY," died Friday, his
    91st birthday.

    The cause was a stroke and Glaser had also had renal failure, his wife, Shirley Glaser, told The New York Times.

    In posters, logos, advertisements and book covers, Glaser's ideas
    captured the spirit of the 1960s with a few simple colors and shapes.
    He was the designer on the team that founded New York magazine with
    Clay Felker in the late `60s.


    His pictorial sense was so profound, and his designs so influential, that
    his works in later years were preserved by collectors and studied as fine art.

    Glaser was born in 1929 in the Bronx and studied at New York’s Cooper
    Union art school and in Italy.


    Polly Anderson, a former staffer of The Associated Press, was
    the principal writer of this obituary

    Condolences to the Glaser family, and to all who loved,
    admired and respected him.
