PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: Limited edition of 40 deluxe brass pins, 1 1/2” wide. These were made at Anacortes Brass Works, a rare opportunity for us to participate in the local heavy-manufacturing industry. They are just down the street from us and they make niiice stuff. Seriously.
This pin is straight up jewelery. It is made of hand-cast hand-polished brass with a tough screw-down toothed clasp on the back, plus a stamp that says “Anacortes Brass Works 2014”. They come in special jewelery boxes with a letterpressed band. Yes, we realize it’s a little bit much to be releasing a(nother) fancy coffee table book and a fancy decorative spangle at the same time, but what the heck.
The story with the design: It comes originally from a freestyle painting done by Kyle Field around 2001 and later used as the cover of Song Islands by the Microphones. I never wanted to have a “logo” for this P.W. Elverum & Sun project (or anything else) since the idea of a branded logo seems to come from somewhere at the cold pole far opposite “wild creativity”, but over the years this floating head doodle has insisted its way into many designs and iterations. It is time to admit that this is our flag. The mysterious face and the non-human sweetness are an emblem, a reminder, of that wild creativity that all these projects are about. I see it and I hear distant music. Why not wear one?
