If you hadn't realised already, Londonist likes its badges. And luckily there seems to have been a bit of a badge resurgence in the capital recently, with Wear it With Pride catering for all our badge purchasing needs, and the British Museum's brilliant little badge exhibition givign us a bit of a history lesson.

And just when you thought you'd seen all the badges you'd needed to see, along comes the Notting Hill Arts club with its Stuck On Me exhibit (you'll have to scroll down a bit for the details).

The NHC have asked people from the art, design and fashion industries to "reinvent the pin badge" in order to "explore the different meanings of badges".

The stated name of curators Joana Niemeyer (of Thomas Manss) and Nadine Fleischer (of The Guardian) is to take badges "to the next level". We're not sure how that's possible but it will be interesting to seem them try. Plus there's an essay by Gavin Lucas, (Creative Review) to provide some historical context.
