An extraordinary literary journey, 100 Years traces the passages of life from age one to one hundred through quotations from the world's greatest writers. Moving year by year, with surprising and illuminating juxtapositions of quotations from figures as diverse as Plato and Woolf, Tolstoy and Barth, this wise, beautiful and moving portrait of the human experience will delight readers of all backgrounds. Other authors include Edith Wharton, Herman Melville, Maya Angelou, Gunter Grass, Gertrude Stein, Norman Mailer, Anne Frank, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Agatha Christie, F. Scott Fitzgerald and dozens of others. Milton Glaser, the renowned graphic designer and creator of the iconic I ? NY logo, has created a design that uses colour and typography to enhance the experience and narrative of the project.
