buttons, buttons, who's got the buttons?

Obsolete World ButtonsOh, I've got the buttons. The talented Jeannie Paske, best known for the evocative covers that adorn most of eluvium's releases, recently sent me a set of five buttons that were previously only available via coin-op dispensers in Portland. My wife and I discovered one of these button dispensers in Reading Frenzy during our last trip to the City of Roses, and kicked ourselves for not bringing enough change to get the whole set. This again stresses the importance of always carrying a sock full of quarters with you wherever you go. If you're unfamiliar with Jeannie's work, you owe it to yourself to check out Obsolete World, her portfolio site. Picking up a print at her Etsy site is not a bad idea, either. And if you have no idea who eluvium is, by-golly, go here, here and here.
