i love buttons. so much so that i refuse to claim that i collect buttons, because whenever i give myself permission to collect something, well, let's just say i always end up with a larger inventory than most retail stores (just ask my paper and fabric collections). i especially love the vintage variety of button, and one of my favorite things to do is paw around in my wide mouth button jar...i just love that happy clinking sound that they make!
i've managed to add buttons to some of my other books, and since i've discovered the coptic binding, i decided to merge the two...and here's the result. i'm really happy with the combination of the tweed looking bookcloth and the vintage buttons. and since i've used four buttons from my button jar, doesn't that give me permission to add some new ones to it?! :)
