It is with great sadness that we must report the tragic death of our daughter Sarah
who passed away on 14th September 2011.
Since then we have continued to sell the remaining issues and donate the proceeds
to the Rethink charity. We have now decided the time has come to close the online
shop. However, it is our intention to make all issues of iSquared magazine available
online with free access. We will make a further announcement on this shortly.

iSquared Magazine is closing down in Summer 2010
“As the sole editor, designer and director of iSquared, I have sadly had to make
the difficult decision to close the magazine in order to concentrate on finishing
my PhD. The final issue of iSquared will be Issue 12 (Summer 2010).”
Sarah Shepherd (Editor)
