Description (Brief)
Pinback button with a blue background featuring a color illustration of a rough-skinned newt.
Emily Robinson, a Northern California artist known for her depictions of insects and wildlife inhabiting the American West, created the illustrations featured on this series of buttons (2019.0150.01-.17). Viewed individually or as a group, her buttons are meant to celebrate the beauty and range of Earth’s biodiversity.
Jerry Meral purchased the buttons directly from Robinson’s shop, Craft and Quail, in 2018, then donated them to NMAH.
