'HiJack' was published as part of Occupied Times take over of Arts London News recently. Lizzie & Nina from the project team have successfully written and designed the article. Well done girls this places outside inside in the outside world. 

HiJack June 2013

Outside / Inside end of project publication has been designed and is being printed by Calverts. We have chosen them to print the broadsheet as they have excellent sustainable credentials and use all vegetable inks and their energy use is from renewable sources. Arthur Stitt, the print manager has been extremely helpful. We have selected a fantastic paper stock from Favini (distributed by Fenner), which we feel is suitable for our project. "Alga Carta is a paper manufactured using polluting alga harvested from the Venice lagoon, combined with FSC certified fibres. Algae blooms at the end of Summer in the Venice lagoon as the warm water combines with pollution. The algae must be harvested to maintain the lagoon's eco-balance (circa 5,000 tonnes of wet algae is removed annually). The algae (seaweed) is used partly as pulp replacement but mainly as a filler and this accounts for its unusual smooth feel and the random specks".

There will be 1,000 copies produced, if you would like a copy please contact: /
