Book Pins by Jane Mount
We’ve rolled out a lot of amazing stuff over our 12 Days of Festivus, but today’s special release is really one for the books. Add a li’l lit to your lapel (or your tote bag, or your baseball hat) with these pint-sized Book Pins! Designed by 20x200 artist Jane Mount, these pins are only available until 11:59pm ET tonight, so take home your favorite tome tout-de-suite.
Choose from five terrific titles: The Great Gatsby, Pride & Prejudice, The Elements of Style, The Catcher in the Rye, and A Wrinkle in Time. Each enamel pin is about one inch tall, with raised gold-plated outlines, and features Mount’s original work—a pocket-sized piece of wearable art.
Mount sought to capture the essence of each book in less than an inch square, taking on the tricky task of alluding to the many ideas and motifs in a given novel through a single, tiny image. Can she convey the spirit of a book in a blink? It’s a challenge she truly loves trying to tackle.
If you never leave your house without a good read. If you’ve finished the chapter but missed your subway stop. If you refuse to watch the adaptation because it will never live up to the book. If you’d rather winnow down your wardrobe to a pair of Spongebob pajamas than be forced to Konmari your book collection…then these pins are for you!
Dear fellow art-loving bibliophiles: we read you loud and clear.
With art for everyone,
Jen Bekman + Team 20x200
