Back in May we reported on Stranded magazine, one of the happier outcomes of the Eyjafjallajökull eruption and the travel chaos it caused. Well, it’s great to report that the magazine, put together through the efforts of people across the world who found themselves stranded by the volcano, is now available. In its 88 pages you’ll find (among other things):
- volcano cocktail recipes from around the globe
- a sense of history from a leading volcanologist
- an exclusive video image from a graffiti artist
- a horror story set inside the ash cloud by an acclaimed novelist
- 53 journalists and the head of the London Design Museum in 16-hour race to catch a boat.
Stranded can be purchased (at $18.95 plus shipping) as a physical magazine from MagCloud.com. A digital version will soon be available from Zinio.com. And very importantly, all proceeds from both editions go to the International Rescue Committee, a charity dedicated to helping people who are stranded in a more permanent way across the world.
You can find out more about Stranded by visiting the blog of Andrew Losowsky, whose inspired creation it is.
UPDATE 9 October 2010: the digital version of Stranded is now available (for $5.00, all to the International Rescue Committee) at Zinio.com.
