Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A revolutionary of visual culture, Seymour Chwast is one of the most influential illustrators of the last half century. Filled with hundreds of his distinctive illustrations, Seymour is a career-spanning volume, sure to be an indispensable addition to the libraries of illustration buffs, pop-culture aficionados, and Chwast's die-hard fans. As co-founder of Push Pin Studios, Chwast has produced a body of illustrationshumorous, ironic, political, and utterly uniquethat are as inspirational to designers and illustrators today as they were when they first came on the scene over sixty years ago. Seymour is a spectacular and extensive tribute to a monumental figure in American illustration.

Book News Annotation:

This oversized volume (9.25x11.25") presents a full homage to the acclaimed and ubiquitous American artist, whose paintings and graphic art are presented in full-page color plates, grouped together not chronologically, but by theme. Two essays introduce the volume. The plates are accompanied by captions giving the title and date, allowing this pithy, satirical, funny, and perennially relevant work to stand on its own. The volume is not indexed. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
