Push Pin Graphic retrospective book

cover of this fabulous book
The excellent Push Pin Graphic retrospective book arrived in the mail today. You must see this book, doubtlessly one of the best design books of the last years. What an inexhaustible source of inspiration and ideas.
This volume contains the essence of what has always fascinated me more about graphic design and illustration. While it is still possible to buy copies of the last numbers, the first ones (published in the fifties) are extremely rare and this book is one of the few chances we have to enjoy them. These artifacts should be digitalized and made more widely available!
{The Push Pin Graphic: a quarter century of innovative design and illustration. By Seymour Chwast, with an introduction by Milton Glaser; edited by Steven Heller and Martin Venezky. Published by Chronicle Books, 2004. Cover price: $50 (you may find it much cheaper; my own copy cost $31.50 at Amazon.) }
