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 winter issue of 2019 features: The Contagious Oceans of Thor Heyerdahl. Salt, the Memory of Water. Twenty-one Stripes on Your Back. Portugal, Dan Costa: the Atlantic of the Sun that Sets.
