About

A “flipped image” or “reversed image,” the more formal term, is a static or moving image that is generated by a mirror-reversal of an original across a horizontal axis (a flopped image is mirrored across the vertical axis). Many printmaking techniques produce images where the printed copy is reversed from the image made on the printing plate, so in a print copying another image, or a real scene or object, unless the artist deliberately creates the plate as a mirror-image of his subject, the finished print will be a mirror image of it. Many printmakers developed the skill of reversing images when making printing plates, but many prints, especially early ones, have images that are reversed.

Featuring work from iconic artists we know and love, as well as designs from acclaimed designers from around the world, Pin Museum strives to create and showcase art and art history-related goods to a broad viewership beyond institutional barriers. Consistently exceeding the expectations of a traditional enamel pin or fashion accessory company, they make products that spawn conversations, showcase unique personalities, and identify unique interests. Henri Matisse once said, “creativity takes courage.” Pin Museum likes to believe they approach their business courageously.
