Makisapa is a small publisher funded in 2017. Its first book is Fieldwork Fail - translated in three languages. Other books mixing comics and illustration with science are expected in 2018 and 2019!
I'm Jim Jourdane, French illustrator. Two years ago I started a series of illustrations about scientists failures - following the #fieldworkfail hashtag. I launched the idea to create a book with these stories and a lot of people helped to make it, backing the crowdfunding.
If you want to discover more the project, maybe you could read:

Makisapa is named after "Maqui Sapa", the spider monkey in Amazon rainforest.
