On April 14th 2010, the ash cloud from an Icelandic volcano closed European airspace. Thousands of people were stranded all over the world.

Andrew Losowsky was one of them, stuck in Dublin, trying to get to the States. A few days in, he had an idea. He put out a call for others stranded around the world and invited them to make a magazine.

That’s pretty much what you need to know about Stranded, and the issue has just been released through MagCloud — Andrew promises that a digital Zinio edition will come out in about a week. The magazine was designed by Matt McArthur (he was stuck in New York), and is packed with stranded-relatd stories from all over. Note also that all proceeds go to the International Rescue Committee.
