Introducing the latest set to join the range here at Button and Squirt.
If you love the coast you are going to love this super fun set of cards introducing you to 70 amazing animals and other treasures found around the british isles.
We couldn't fit everything that you might see in the set so we have chosen 70 that will give you a great introduction to some of the amazing things you might find.
As ever this set has been designed and illustrated by myself in my home studio in sunny Wiltshire, and printed in the UK using sustainable materials and coated with a water based varnish that means they remain recyclable at the end of their life. They are printed in a solar powered factory.
What are they?
Each Card is double sided, with an animal or other treasure that you might find on the coast featured on each side.
There is an illustration along with their common name, scientific name, when to see them in the year and a fun fact.
As ever the background colour of the card helps you sort them and learn something else as well, for these coast cards the colours help you organise your cards into the different types of things you may find , so you can have a look at all of the marine mammals, or starfish or crustaceans etc together.
