Join us tonight from 6-9pm at the I Am Logan Square Gallery to celebrate the release of “A Very Brief History of Buttons”— a zine written in collaboration between Busy Beaver owner Christen Carter and production manager Joel Carter.
As the title suggests, the 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.
Tonight’s event is also your final chance to check out the Busy Beaver art show, so be sure to stop by! For more details on the event, check out the I Am Logan Square event page.
