I didn’t think then – where did the buttons come from, how many centuries have they already existed, who invented them? But I would surely have loved The Button Parade by Ekaterina Kalikinskaya, a book that answers all these questions. It turns out that I’m not the only one who loves button parades. It turns out that the buttons are much older than you might think looking at our ordinary plastic buttons. The most ancient of them – flat – archaeologists find in the Egyptian pyramids. Buttons on legs were invented by the ancient Greeks, but only for men, and pins were given to women. We use both pins and buttons to this day.
How much could an ancient button tell about the well-being of its owner! The larger the button, the more wealth. Gold buttons, silver, bronze. Glass from Venice, mosaic from Florence. What did the old masters not invent, what precious materials were not used for what we now think is a simple thing like a button. Later, buttons learned to tell not only about wealth, but also about the occupations of their owners – the military and sailors. The button immediately shows who is of what kind of troops.
Shaped buttons still have not lost their meaning. But materials have changed over the centuries. The invention of plastic made buttons really cheap, but they can still be pretty and colorful. By the way, recently I saw an exhibition of an artist who makes all her paintings from buttons. And everyone can make an interesting necklace of buttons. Buttons do a lot.
