Push Pin Graphic, Number 54 (the South), 1969. 'Juxtaposing southern imagery, haunting song lyrics, and photographs of slain civil rights leaders, The South, completed by Chwast in 1969, stands as a powerful political statement. A bullet hole (the black dot in each image) was die-cut through every spread, depicting the brutal death of those killed in pursuit of equality. The piece ends on a hopeful note, with an icon of the south shot dead, a full page clipping of the March on Washington, and the words “We Shall Overcome.” (Source) www.seymourchwastarchive.com
'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
