    "'On the button' is an inventive and unusual exploration of the cultural history of the button with all its metaphorical and lexical suggestiveness. It tells tales of a huge variety of the button's forms and functions, its sometimes uncompromising glamour, its strongholds in fashion and literature, its place in the visual arts, its association with crime and death, its tender call to nostalgia and the sentimental."--BOOK JACKET.
