“A Very Brief History of Buttons,” Busy Beaver’s first-ever zine, was released back in 2014. The zine is of a cultural history of the 20th century as told through pin-back buttons and the messages they spread. In just a few short years, the publication has made its way into the hands of movers and shakers in the design and button world, as well as being sold at an amazing roster of independent bookstores and museums across the country.
In honor of the button’s 119th birthday today, we’re excited to announce that the zine is now available to view online through Issuue below, or you can download your very own pdf copy.
If you like it in digital form, check out the print copy in our online shop!
