AUTHORBIO: Ann Kerr was an avid Russel Wright collector and researchers of his works for many years. She was able to finish writing her third edition of the Collector's Encyclopedia of Russel Wright before she passed away in 2001. REVIEW: In only 168 pages, this book has made a successful collector out of me. It has numerous illustrations, all in color; an orderly method of describing types of buttons and their history; tips on cleaning and displaying them; and addresses of publications, suppliers, and clubs for collectors. Although it is crisply informative, the book also conveys the pleasant, upbeat personality of the writer. -Amazon.com
