Buttons have been made from almost every known material and by every manufacturing technique. Their study provides insight into fashion trends, the clothing industry and social history in general. This book introduces the wonderful array of these treasures from the past, to show the variety of materials and the intricate design and workmanship incorporated in the making of the humble button. Military and civilian uniform buttons are not included. Buttons can still be found amongst small items of silver or jewellery on antique stalls. The discerning eye can also spot interesting examples at boot fairs or charity shops. Collecting buttons can therefore be a hobby for everyone, however much or little they have to spend.
