Official book description:
Badges, buttons and pins have been around for over a century. Today
they're everywhere: on lapels and bags all over the world and in the
sketchbooks and on the screens of some of the hottest graphic designers,

political or cultural affiliations or it can simply be a fashion accessory.
Cheap to produce and easy to make at home, the humble badge is the
new T-shirt. A guide to the best and most beautiful badges being produced
right now - be they graphic, textual or plain illustrative - this
book explores the rich variety of uses of the badge since the year
2000 – whether it be promotion, revenue-raising or simply decorative.
It will appeal to graphic designers, illustrators, fashion designers,
artists, music lovers and badge enthusiasts of all ages.
