Push Pin

DylanIn 1954, Milton Glaser, Seymour Chwast, and Ed Sorel founded Push Pin Studios and transformed graphic design forever. Unapologetically drawing from the entire history of visual culture, from German woodcuts to Art Nouveau to 1930s comic art, Push Pin created a fresh, witty, surrealist, and thought-provoking style that (re)united illustration with typography and design. Many of today's edgiest graphic designers owe it all to Push Pin, whether they realize it or not.

BB co-conspirator and Chronicle Books editor Alan Rapp is helping bring the joy of Push Pin to a wider audience with The Push Pin Graphic, a collection of the studio's signature periodical produced from the 1950s to the 1980s.
