Blase Buttons | Monotype 1406

from 2.00

Letterpress button badges...

If you like a little letterpress in your life, then these buttons are ideal for you. Great for anyone who loves letterpress & all things print... ideal for any pattern or ornament addict...

Are your coat lapels looking a little naked? Do you have a scarf or hat that needs a little pick me up? Or a bag crying out for some ornament? Then these buttons are just the ticket.

They also make a lovely gift for the grown up button collector... 

All buttons are packed together in a red menko envelope & have been printed on Beatrice my Model No.11 Farley Proofing Press. The buttons are printed with David Bethal's wonderful Blase corner design & made by hand.

Bethal designed the Blase corner unit (1406) for Monotype in 1957 alongside a border ornament (1405). The Blase design was issued by Monotype in 1958 & went on to become a popular design.

Beatrice Warde was working as the corporation’s publicity manager when Bethal submitted his border & corner design to Monotype & christened it 'Blase'.

You can choose from a single button or a set featuring the three colours.

Materials:

48 gsm paper, Hawthorn letterpress ink (scarlet, tangerine & turquoise), 38mm metal backed button badge with safety pin.

Size & description:

These 38mm letterpress printed buttons come with a safety pin back... but still be mindful if giving to small children or accident prone adults!
