A Very Brief History of Buttons

by Busy Beaver Button Co

As the title suggests, the 24-page zine is a quick look at the history of pin-backs, told through photos of buttons through history. The photos are accompanied by clever captions which reveal fun facts and historical data collected by the Busy Beaver Button Museum. Focusing on buttons as artifacts of cultural history, the zine features everything from a historical Abraham Lincoln pre-button to a Gag Me With a Spoon button from the early 1980s.
