Push Pin Graphic, Number 53 (Chew, Chew, Baby), 1967. An early example of Chwast’s now characteristic use of outline and bold, flat colour. The story, by Ronald M. Deutsch, explored the eating habits of Horace Fletcher, a dietician and “high priest of mastication,” who recommended chewing food 32 times before swallowing. '
Started by Push Pin Studios as a freeform publication sent to friends and clients in 1957, the experimental and groundbreaking Push Pin Graphic, quickly developed a dedicated following, eventually running for 23 years and 86 issues. Changing to a 32-page bimonthly in 1976, and continuing publication until 1980.' (Source) www.pushpininc.com
