Glint Buttons | Monotype B1309

from 1.20

Beautiful 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 envelope & have been printed on Lotte my Cropper & Charlton Peerless Treadle Press. The buttons are printed with David Bethal's wonderful Glint border design & made by hand.

Bethal designed the Glint border (B1309) for Monotype in 1956 along side a corner ornament (B1310). The Glint combinations went on to become a popular Monotype design & are still in use by letterpress printers.

Beatrice Warde was working as the corporation’s publicity manager when Bethal submitted his Glint design to Monotype, she developed a self-confessed ‘mania’ for ‘working out combinations’ of the new border.

Warde went on to invent the Glint Game, encouraging others to ‘experiment & invent’ new Glint combinations, she claimed to have discovered 75 such combinations in collaboration with her personal assistant Sarah Clutton.

If you are mad about Glint or are just feeling Glintastic why not show it by pinning a button badge on your lapel, bag strap, print shop notice board... 

You can choose from a single button or sets of 2, 3 or 4.

Materials:

100 gsm paper, black Adana ink, 25mm button badge with D ring.
