Jean Michel Folon and Milton Glaser, The Conversation, Harmony Books: New York, 1983.

Here's a book that bubbles with the playfulness resulting from this collaboration between these two accomplished artists and friends. Folon (1934-2005) was a noted Belgium artist and illustrator, and Glaser (1929-2020) was a towering figure in the world of American design. 

On Glaser's website he writes about this genesis of this book, "Glaser and the French artist Jean Michel Folon were great friends over a long period of time. They decided to celebrate that friendship by creating a book where one would start a drawing and the other would finish it. It's an accordian fold that celebrates an affectionate relationship."

35 pages, single-sided, individual pages 9.25"(h) by 6.25"(w), when opened 19ft 3.25".
