“tender buttons” centennial

gertrude stein memorabilia

“Nickel, what is nickel, it is originally rid of a cover. The change

in that is that red weakens an hour. The change has come.

There is no search. But there is, there is that hope and that

interpretation and sometime, surely any is welcome, sometime

there is breath and there will be a sinecure and charming very

charming is that clean and cleansing. Certainly glittering is

handsome and convincing.”


~ Gertrude Stein


These lines are from “Glazed Glitter”, the second poem in Gertrude Stein’s monumental book, Tender Buttons. Famous for her Salon in Paris, Stein was an American art collector whose 27 rue de Fleures welcomed such great artists as Picasso, Pound, Joyce, Hemingway, and Matisse, among many others. As a writer, she produced novels, stories, plays, poetry, and libretti. Her writing has been described as “stream-of-consciousness experiments, rhythmical essays or ‘portraits’… designed to evoke ‘the excitingness of pure being’ and can be seen as literature’s answer to Cubism, plasticity, and collage”. The classic work, Tender Buttons, was published in 1914, and has become a major influence in contemporary poetics. Its aesthetic is pure genius. With loud colors inspired by Pop Art, these magnetic memorabilia issued in 2014 commemorate the publication centennial of Tender Buttons. Welcome to the irreverent experimentation heralded in by Stein's timeless writing.
