Push Pin Almanack

Push Pin Studio began in the early 1950’s as a loose collective of a few Cooper Union graduates who promoted their design and illustration in a jointly produced series of brochures, “The Push Pin Almanack.” In 1954 The Push Pin Studios was formed by Glaser, Chwast, and Edward Sorel. In 1957 the Almanack gave way to the more ambitiously conceived Push Pin Graphic, each issue of which had a different format, size and theme. Published 6 times a year and in later years was mailed to 8,000 with 3,000 subscribers around the world, the Graphic showcased the work of the studio’s principal members and awareness of their work spread quickly.

Push Pin’s distinctive approach was noted for its eclectic sophistication, finding inspiration in the Italian Renaissance, Art Nouveau and Art Deco, early American painting, 19th century woodcuts and wood engraving techniques, and Russian Constructivism, and in forgotten typographic styles of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
