Written in collaboration between Busy Beaver owner Christen Carter and production manager Joel Carter, this 24-page zine is a quick look at the history of pin-backs told through photos of historical buttons. Photos are accompanied by clever captions which reveal fun facts and historical data collected by the Busy Beaver Button Museum. Focusing on how buttons are 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.

Cover designed by Mike McQuade and printed by the Delicious Design League.
