'proffers history, design, cultural relationships between them as well as some exquisite images' - New York Journal of Books

A fascinating historical overview of the evolution of brooches and badges from the Middle Ages to today.

From medieval pilgrim badges and Renaissance hat decorations to jewelled brooches and twentieth-century political pins, brooches and badges are often more than practical or decorative dress fasteners; they are expressions of identity. Focusing on the V&A's world-famous collection, Brooches & Badges explores the evolution of these intricate and versatile works of art, and the way in which changes in dress have dictated their use.
