Book Pin: The Catcher in the Rye

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 is one of the most popular books ever, J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye. The pin shows Holden Caufield, in his red hunting cap and smoking a cigarette, because, well, that is what he does pretty much non-stop in the book. 

Based on an original drawing by Jane Mount.
