The Wonderful World of Microbes is a digital zine (a small self-published magazine) about microbes and their profound influence of everything inside and around us.
The zine can be downloaded, printed, and shared freely for personal and educational use. You may use individual pages or the whole publication. The text and art are copyrighted material and author and artist should be credited when pages or the publication are used. The zine may not be sold, in part or entirely, and the illustrations may not be used for any other purpose. The zine is available in English, Spanish, and French.
The publication is an outcome of a collaboration cultivated by the WISCIENCE Public Service Fellows program. This program is funded in part by the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the National Science Foundation’s Innovations in Graduate Education grant #1806908.
The zine is available in two formats: consecutive individual pages, and booklet format (in spreads). We recommend consecutive pages unless you plan to print it and use it as a booklet. To make the booklet, print settings should be double-sided, short-edge binding, landscape mode.
El zine está disponible en dos formatos: páginas individuales consecutivas, y formato cuadernillo. Te recomendamos el formato de páginas consecutivas a menos que tengas planeado imprimirlo y usarlo como un cuadernillo.

Le zine est disponible en deux formats: pages individuelles consécutives ou en livret. Nous recommandons de télécharger en pages consécutives mais d’imprimer en format livret. Pour imprimer le livret, vos paramètres doivent être reliure recto verso, bord court et mode paysage.
