Product Overview

Anti-fascist collection

We have long believed that having produced the Woody Guthrie - This Machine Kills Fascists t-shirt that we should do something similar with a badge.

So here it is an enamel guitar badge which comes with brooch fixing reproduced from the image on our t-shirt.

Image says it all really!


We wondered why we had been selling more Woody Guthrie badges recently and now we know.

An article appeared in The Guardian's culture xmas gift listing which advises readers they can purchase a Woody Guthrie guitar badge from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London!…/culture-christmas-gift-guide-…

The article talks about not being "dust bowl prices" and they are right, £8.50 for a badge! 

We thought it was only living Royal's who were parasites but it appears even their dead relatives museums get in on the act.

Note the mask and a gun pricing of 'their' badge.

Not only that the badge look almost identical to ours, but according to the Museum they didn't copy ours. As they say in Glasgow Aye Right!…/guthrie-guitar-enamel-badge-147358.…

 And of course if you want a quality Guthrie badge at Calton prices you are on the right page.

    this is such a moving tribute to woody guthrie and everything he represented. I was impressed by ever aspect of the experience. The pin is amazing, the quality is great, the bookstore was thoughtful and the shipping was very fast and well priced. I have nothing but good things to day about Calton Books.
