I sincerely hope enamel pins never go out of style, because they’re everything perfect and wonderful in a tiny, affordable package. Designers and creators are using the medium to resist, to spread the word about important issues, as well as to simply have fun with the medium on an artistic level. Naturally, I’m not only enamored with enamel pins; I’m especially enamored with feminist enamel pins. I’ve got a nice collection of them on a canvas banner I picked up a few years ago, and I love adding more pins to it.
This being a book website, it seemed fitting to tie in these twin passions and highlight an array of amazing bookish feminist pins. Find below pins featuring luminaries of literature, excellent feminist lines from fiction and nonfiction, and many more excellent enamel pins for bookish feminists.
