(About) 'Push Pin Studios was founded in 1954 by Seymour Chwast, Milton Glaser, and Edward Sorel (Reynold Ruffins joined the group shortly thereafter). A revolutionary force in the field of graphic design, the celebrated partnership began when the foursome met as students at the Cooper Union in New York City. What followed was twenty years of collaborative graphic expression, as Push Pin redefined and expanded the imprimatur of the designer, illustrator, and visual culture at large.' (Source)

Art directed and designed by Chwast, each is issue is a graphic presentation of a theme, representing work by Push Pin Studio artists.
