Seymour Chwast, New York, New York, 1978

Description

Chwast threw caution to the wind with this mock travel guide to the Garden State, New Jersey, long the butt of New Yorkers’ jokes. The state was treated ironically on the cover by Mantel and as an oil slick by Miyauchi, but realistically in “Route 22 Typographica,” a precursor to the nineties celebration of vernacular design. Collier’s somber painting of bathers moodily reflected the seedy essence of the seaside.
