It’s hard to get more rounded than a button, so I’ll take this excuse to post yet another kind of button collection —
Not that this is a conscious collection, it’s a group of ‘found’ buttons I put together when I came across them while packing up. Some must have been Bob’s (Politically Incorrect). Later I found political buttons old enough to have been his father’s, but by now they’re packed up again. They may show up in a later post.
Here’s a button collection from a display at MAD’s (the Museum of Art and Design) Counter Couture show last March. It’s a time-capsule, an interesting aside to the exhibition, and a flashback if you remember the Sixties (but as the saying goes, if you remember the Sixties you weren’t really there). It was a big time for buttons, so someone got a little humor out of the ‘Ban Buttons’ button —
While we’re at MAD, here’s a view of a gorgeous and eye-popping crocheted wrap and bathing suit with rounded patterns. Curves may have been synonymous with groovy there for a while. —
As for the Sixties, here’s a test: “Remember what the dormouse said?”
