Available

Description

A wooden box holds the buttons of three generations of women in Lynn Knight's family - each one with its own tale to tell...

Tracing the story of women at home and in work, from the jet buttons of Victorian mourning, to the short skirts of the 1960s, taking in suffragettes, bachelor girls, little dressmakers, Biba and the hankering for vintage, The Button Box lifts the lid on women's lives and their clothes with elegance and wit.
