The life and work of the first woman art director of a mass-market publication, an early role model for women in design.
One of the unsung pioneers of American graphic design, Cipe Pineles was art director of Glamour, Seventeen, Charm, and Mademoiselle magazines between 1930 and 1960, helped to create the institutional identity for Lincoln Center in the 1960s, and taught generations of students at Parsons School of Design. Tracing Pineles's career from young immigrant to ranking female in the design world, Martha Scotford chronicles her professional life at a time when few women were involved in design and assesses her contributions to graphic design and magazine design in particular.
