Tells all about buttons, making and history 11 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has cute drawings and has photos. Tells how to buy buttons, make them, how to sew on, care for them, make games with them, and ideas for using them in crafts. There is history, stories, and it is a fun book for a button lover. Covers know how and fun stuff. Delightful read, hard to put down.

Collecting "textbook" for youth. 16 Feb. 2015
By P. Jean Champoux - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very comprehensive book for introductory to the collecting and various uses for sewing buttons.
I plan to use it as a "textbook" to encourage young Daisy scouts with this hobby.
The content of the book is great but I expected more detail about the buttons themselves 22 Sept. 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The content of the book is great but I expected more detail about the buttons themselves. It's full of creative ideas and history. I would buy from this vendor again.
