Camp Followers' Guide, 1965 (1)
Full book in this Ipernity album

...

Edited by Niles Chignon (fictitious; entire book written by Richard R. Lingeman)
Designed by Milton Glaser, Vincent Ceci, and Push Pin Studios

"This cheap little Avon paperback ... is a tasty bit of wit and whimsy that feels hastily thrown together to take advantage of the Camp fad before it would vanish like the shallow glorification of artifice that it was ... It was published by the team that brought us Monocle, that smartly irreverent satire magazine of the early 1960s ... Overall, the design is a modest effort, and hardly represents a landmark in Push Pin’s legacy. But for me, that’s part of its appeal. Unlike sanctimonious Susan [Sontag], the entire book doesn’t take anything—particularly Camp, appropriately enough—at all seriously." -Michael Dooley
