The award-winning authors of this small book with a big heart delve into Te Papa's collections of over 1600 badges to examine how New Zealanders have used badges to join, belong, resist, defy and celebrate. From protest groups and Girl guides to sports clubs, animal breeds, tino rangatiratanga and suffrage, there has been a pin for almost every New Zealand cause and endeavour. Through different themes, they explore what we've worn over the years and why, and New Zealanders' passion for badges, for 'joining and belonging'. With a lively text and a wide range, this is accessible social history at its best.
