BUTTONS – THERE ARE MANY PRACTICAL, POLITICAL, DECORATIVE, IDENTIFYING PURPOSES SERVED.
Here is the story of Ruth Meier, a New Zealand collector of art deco buttons, 3,000 of them. (Look out for a bigger collection that will be on show in the Ephemera Journal of Australia #2, expected publication date mid January.) The exhibition of the Meier collection is at the Dowse Art Gallery, Lower Hutt, north of Wellington. Here is a link about the exhibition with some views of the collection.
