Gift Box — BGB056
Warning: Last items in stock!
PLEASE NOTE — Our long so-called bracelet-style top lid gift boxes (215 x 45 x 25mm) will soon be replaced with Stereohype's new matchbox-style gift box versions. We only have limited stock of these long boxes left during this transition period. New additions will automatically be packaged with our new matchbox-style packaging. We will gradually reshoot preview visuals but for now it is what you see is what you get.
Each of these long luxury gift boxes contains seven of Stereohype's popular button badges. Selected designs are taken from Stereohype's growing button badge collection. So-called Artist Gift Boxes feature button badges designed by only one of Stereohype's super-talented 600+ international contributors – artists, illustrators, designers, architects, photographers, collectives and studios. Inside the elegant 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 printed and encapsulated with love and care in the United Kingdom.
Badges by Dan Fern from Stereohype's B.I.O. Series 18. Dan's button badge artworks where created by physically holding a white circular paper mask over existing collages. He then took pictures of his selected details. Collages are based on a series of originally rectangular collages Dan worked on at the time titled Information May Have Been Lost (IMHBL).
Single badge SKUs: B1379B18, B1380B18, B13815B18, B1382B18, B1383B18, B1384B18 and B1385B18.
The seven artworks are also available as Button Badge Motif Prints.
(...) ‘I like the prints very much – the paper and print quality are really excellent. That whole project is so interesting – I'm amazed at the number and variety of the badges, and very impressed by the quality of presentation. I'm happy to have been able to take part in it!’ — Dan Fern
