Who would suspect that buttons have been made out of blood, insects, gold-filled teeth, milk, beer, and tiger’s toenails? Or that buttons can be miniature works of art? These are but a few of the fascinating facts about buttons, button people, and button collecting that Ms. Lockie presents for the reader’s enjoyment in All Because of A Button.

This book shows how buttons have influenced history and culture and yet remain an intriguing hobby for everyone. As Millicent Safro states in her foreword, “It is not surprising then that these relics of the past are desired by collectors from around the world. What is surprising and also amusing is the vast number of people who are attracted to the notion of learning history from a button.”
