Warman’s Button Field Guide is a book that entails information regarding the identification of over 900 buttons of the collectible, antique, and vintage type. In addition to the knowledge about these buttons, the book also provides the prices, description, and bits about the buttons’ history and origins aimed at making it easier for people to identify and learn about the buttons that they are collecting.
The book is very detailed and all the information provided can be very beneficial to the readers. Aside from description and history, there are also photographs and additional section that classifies buttons into various categories. Aside from the prices given for each button, there’s also an explanation on why the buttons are priced as such. The size of the book is also perfect for bringing it along when button hunting in garage sales or yard sticks.
Some readers think that the pictures are too large for the book. Moreover, the book focuses on a certain variety of buttons and does not leave room for other types. And even though the book’s size considered the possibility of people bringing it along, it came out quite bulky and heavy so people will still have a bit of a hard time carrying the book around.
