What you use every day is small and large, without value and in addition to the price.It’s easy to find in the gutter, but you can never be able to replace it.You are still lost, but it protects you faithfully; sexy and tense, it is knitted with your affection, or it can give you nightmares.It has led to conflict, encouraged and political and religious repression changes and embodies the great aesthetic movements.It is eurocentric and can be found everywhere in the worldOn the button is an inventive and unusual exploration of the cultural history of the button, illustrated with a multitude of buttons in black and white and color.It tells stories of a wide variety of button shapes and functions, its glamour sometimes uncompromising glamour, its fiefdom in fashion and literature, its place in the visual arts, its association with crime and death, its invitation to tender for nostalgia and sentimentality.There has been work addressed to the button collector and general cultural historyOn the button connects the two, revealing why we are so attracted to the buttons, and how they point well above their weight.
