STEREOHYPE BADGES ACROSS 25 PAGES
I Love Badges / Chapas by Spanish Monsa Publishing features on a whopping 25 pages hundreds of button badges we commissioned for our online boutique Stereohype!
___ I Love Badges / Chapas is unfortunately not as thorough and well designed as the brilliant and highly recommended Badge Button Pin book by Gavin Lucas / Intercity.
___ 25 pages for us (12 of them full pages, plus flaps and back cover) certainly is a new record for a showcase book. But we just say: Comic Sans?! And can't resist to mention the numerous typos (including some in our names) that we simply stopped counting... Pity – this could have been a great book but simply turned out to be a half-hearted attempt to publish a 'competing' book to the instant classic Badge Button Pin. If you really do love badges and only want to have one reference book – do stick with Gavin's book... Just in case you collect badges and books on badges:
