Death Head Buttons, Their Use and Construction


( / )


By Norman H. Fuss

Thread buttons are found profusely in art, extant garments and store advertisements of the 18th century. Norman Fuss, a longtime independent researcher and costumer, brings together a well-illustrated and informative book that provides concise instructions on making a thread wrapped button in a true 18th century fashion as well as providing the reader with documentation and insight as to the use of these buttons on the clothing of men (and yes, women).

  • The step by step directions are easy to follow and with wood, horn or bone button molds and silk buttonhole twist, you are on your way to making your own thread buttons.
