700: SIRENE N°12

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 spring issue of 2021 features: Bodysurfing. The Human Side of the Ocean. Paul Theroux. Anafi, the last outpost in the Cyclades. Giacomo De Stefano, Nomad with Oars. The Little Black Shack. The Art of Japanese Swimming. Sakamoto’s Swim Club. David Lewis. Among the Sailors of Île-à-Vache. Siargao, Water Play.

It also features a short article about the Sea Library! 💙
