682: Sirene N°5

Sirene is an international award-winning publication, tailored for those people who feel close to the sea even when they are far away from it.  Large recycled paper pages, rough and porous as only saltwater stains can be, large white spaces, pure as a sea horizon, and page-turner stories that will put you on the same wave-length with a surging community looking at the oceans as the intersection of the planet’s destinies.  Its paper is made from algae, to make use of excess algal blooms from lagoons at risk. For every half kilo of fresh algae, a kilo of wood is saved.

This summer issue of 2017 features: Ceylon Sliders: Living to Surf in Sri Lanka; On Board with Cousteau; An Alphabet of Surfing; In Flight Beneath the Surface with Francesca Rivetti; Tristan Gooley: the Geography of Water; Small Crossings in the Upper Adriatic Coast; The Shape of the Wind: Daily Life Aboard Hōkūle’a; Paper Fish, Men of the Sea; The Other Santorini; Golden Globe Race 2018: Susie Goodall, the Call to Adventure; On a secret ferry from India to the Andaman Islands.

“Going back to perceive the flow of time by looking at the arc of the sun, evaluating from the shape of a cloud whether the wind will rise up or a calm thermal breeze will remain, getting the eye used to estimating the speed and the distances, are all part of the practices of people who rediscover a way of being in the sea.”
