Book Pin: Hamlet

Wear your book on your sleeve! Or, maybe better, the lapel of your jean jacket.

With the Book Pins, I'm trying to capture the essence of a book in less than an inch square.

Each badge is a hard enamel lapel pin with raised gold-plated outlines. It's about 1 inch tall by 0.75 inches wide, and attaches to your clothing with a black rubber clutch. It ships pinned to a small cardboard plaque.

This pin for Shakespeare's brilliant tragedy of the Danish prince Hamlet features the skull of poor Yorick, "a fellow of infinite jest".

Based on an original drawing by Jane Mount.
