“When life gives you volcanoes, make magazines.”

via GOOD (September 14, 2010):

“When Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted last April, it created an ash cloud that disrupted air travel across Europe for days on end, leaving many travelers stranded in airports.

Andrew Losowsky was one such traveler. But Losowsky, a writer and editor, used the occasion for an information-age media experiment. Stranded in Dublin, he issued an open call to designers, writers, photographers, and illustrators get in touch and help him make a magazine, called Stranded, about being stranded by the volcano.

He got responses from more than 50 talented people he had never met; collected their submissions; and, with the help of the designer Matt McArthur, put together what he describes as an “88-page souvenir of a moment in time when a non-life-threatening crisis hit the world, one for which nobody was to blame, and nobody knew how long it would last.”

This week, he announced that Stranded is on sale, and shipping worldwide. It costs $18.95 and you can pick up a copy here. All proceeds are going to the International Rescue Committee.”

September 15’s daily design idea is from Andrew Losowsky’s original open call: “If there’s one thing my ol’ ma taught me, it’s that when life gives you volcanoes, make magazines. And so we shall.”
