Where would we be without buttons? Literally falling apart at the seams. As I imagine a world in which suddenly all the buttons disappeared, it helps me to appreciate just how important buttons really are. We would… also miss out on the opportunity to use them as a fashion statement. I’m not even talking about buttons of the political, mechanical or belly variety – I will save those positives for another day. I appreciate the ease and simplicity of the invention of the button and how it makes our life so much better.
