Archaeology of Pull Tabs

Typology page

Yes, you did it! You found the page which aims to one day be the most complete pull tab overview of…the world! If you want to type or date a certain tab you found, this is the place to come to.

Get the ‘Woodstock ‘ typology

If you are looking for the material version, the Woodstock 2.0 typology, then go to our stuff page. It is the most complete version of our World Wide Pull Tab Typology in print at this time and actually more complete than this website. We spent a lot of effort in getting it completed en printed before the CHAT 2020 Festival.

As for this page, it’s work in progress..

Remember those old websites from the nineties with ‘under construction’ on it? Did we laugh about those silly people who didn’t yet understand a page is ALWAYS under construction, usually with one of those animated GIFs to the side…However, the description does fit this typology page pretty well. New pull tabs are found every other week, and i happen to have limited time…so this gallery is indeed…under construction.

But we’ll show you what we’ve got. Pictures are mostly made by Tonnie Wijnen (my dad. 😉 If you have comments on how we should set up the typology, please put a comment below this page or email us at info@pulltabarchaeology.com

The first typology of 2014 -Don’t use it! There’s some mistakes on it.

This is what the FIRST version 1.0 looked like! We had quite a laugh back in 2014. 🙂 But don’t use it no more (!) It has some mistakes in it. (If you are looking for the newest version, the Woodstock 2.0 typology, then go to our stuff page.)
