Leslie Buck, Designer of New York Coffee Cup, Dies

I don’t drink coffee, but being a New Yawker, I can identify with the Anthora, the coffee cup to the right. Leslie Buck, the man who designed the cup, just died.

Click here to read his obituary, which includes the history of the cup, including this gem:
"Though the Anthora no longer dominates the urban landscape as it once did, it can still be found at diners, delis and food carts citywide, a squat, stalwart island in a sea of tall, grande and venti."
