Something Special

Design Letterbox Curator Robyn Annear

An exhibition about multiples. A surplus of badges, medals, armbands and buttons mass-produced in times of strife and celebration displayed en masse: 167 armbands issued to Special Constables during the 1923 Police Strike; 72 commemorative medals produced in 1945 marking the end of the second World War; 192 medals produced for school children for the Queen’s 1953 coronation. Think history, think multiples, think bling.
