Warning: Last items in stock!
This elegant matchbox-style gift box contains four designs from Stereohype's growing button badge collection – now available for the first time in this superb packaging solution. A rose-gold foil-blocked Stereohype mascot squirrel was hand-printed in the UK at the top of the gift box (outside dimensions: 75 x 72 x 16mm). Inside the beautiful matt black cardboard gift box is a black flock pad and badges are directly pinned into it. All Stereohype button badges available at stereohype.com are classic high quality one inch (25mm) metal back badges with so-called D-pin (although it looks more like an 'e'). Tiny stickers at the back of each button badge mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. Badges are manufactured with love and care in the United Kingdom.
Taxidermy Bird Eyes — The imagery for this Intercity badge series has been taken from a project the studio did in early 2012 for Brighton-based record label Concrete Plastic. With a brief that included a reference to the 1982 science fiction film Blade Runner, Intercity came up with the idea of photographing the plastic bird eyes used in taxidermy – a direct reference to the scene in the film where an owl’s eyes flicker with a red tint, indicating that it is artificial. The orange taxidermy eye seen here (taken from the Blixaboy Intro to Futro EP cover artwork) is that of a Snowy Owl, and the yellow taxidermy eye (taken from the Blixaboy Futro City album cover artwork) is that of a Sparrowhawk.
