Bee a Good Human: A Pollinators' Guide to a Better Life (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Everything is going to bee ok. Maybe she's born with it; maybe it's metamorphosis. Just wing it. Combining inspiration, humor, and entomology, Ali Beckman's Instagram cartoons are spreading more than just joy on the Internet. Her witty comics, which use actual insects in everyday situations and resonate with so many, also spread awareness of the importance of pollinators.

Using creatures that are donated, purchased, or found dead to create amusing cartoons, Beckman highlights the integral role insects have in our environment. Typically, honeybees are considered the only pollinator worth saving, but pollinators, like people, come in all shapes and sizes! Did you know a tiny midge, cousin to the fly, pollinates chocolate? Or that beetles are essential for pollinating some flowers? Insects and their contributions to our ecosystem are hard to ignore: without them, our planet wouldn't survive.

Bee a Good Human features the best of Beckman's @SoFlyTaxidermy Instagram art. She proves that size doesn't matter after all: some of the smallest insects have the biggest impact on our ecosystem. With 106 color illustrations, many of which have never appeared online, Bee a Good Human will make you consider the bigger picture-and laugh a little too.

Ali Beckman is the creator of @SoFlyTaxidermy on Instagram. In 2016, she came home one day to find two dead flies lying next to each other. She couldn't get over the image of the two flies having a conversation before they died. So, she grabbed a piece of paper, picked up the flies, got her pen out, and started drawing. Ali lives in Bloomington, Indiana, with her dog, Georgie, and works as a hairstylist at Mira Salon and Boutique Spa and as a yoga teacher at Vibe Yoga Studio. She enjoys hiking, learning about insects, and eating hot dogs at Orbit Room.
