Description

140 curated posters by the revolutionary graphic artist Seymour Chwast provides context and insight into his five-decade career, as well as the poster genre itself. Since founding legendary Push Pin Studios alongside Milton Glaser and Edward Sorel in the 1950s, Chwast’s posters have been widely celebrated for their combination of subversive style and strong political satire. His caustic humor, graphic hand, and visual commentary cleverly synthesize in a way that is both wry and immediately understandable.

Posters are arranged by type — Causes, Commerce, Information, Exhibits, and Lectures — rather than chronology, which, along with the large format, invites readers to engage thematically with the designs.

Commentary on each poster makes this a valuable resource for students, educators, historians, and all who appreciate the unique ability of posters to subvert notions of popular culture, politics, and design at once.

Essays by Shepard Fairey and the renowned graphic art authority and author, Steven Heller, contextualize Chwast’s impact on 20th-century design.
