This week saw the passing of a man that has touched us practically every day- a few times a day- for years. Leslie Buck, the designer of the omnipresent blue Anthora Coffee cup died at the age of 87.
Buck had no formal art training but rather was Director of Marketing for the Sherri Cup Company at the time. He made no royalties off the design but as sales of the cups grew, so did his profits.

Ceramic versions of the cup are now available. Try www.modlivin.com . Spend the $38.00 in memory of the man who thought of you drinking your morning cup even if you never gave him a thought.
