Mirko Ilić has a reputation as a rebel, but his iconoclasm is matched with his tremendous gifts as an illustrator, a designer, and an educator. This visual biography of one of the most prolific and distinguished designers of the last half century traces Ilić‘s formative years as a precocious youth in Yugoslavia during the Communist-bloc era; his early illustrations for comic books and magazines; and his eventual move to the United States, where he quickly achieved notoriety as the art director of Time magazine's international edition and The New York Times' op-ed pages.
