Pentagram Papers have been produced exclusively for clients and colleagues since 1975, and were published to provide "examples of curious, entertaining, stimulating, provocative, and occasionally controversial points of view that have come to the attention of, or in some cases, are actually originated by, Pentagram."

'Pentagram Papers 17: The Many Faces of Mao considers the cult of Chairman Mao, which generated thousands of likenesses in various materials. Buttons grew so large that Mao himself asked citizens to stop because the aluminum used to make them was creating a shortage in plane manufacturing. By the early 1970s, Mao buttons disappeared from public view.' (Source)
