Gallivanting around town in the past few days you may have noticed something interesting in the coffee shops, the malls, the bakeries, and the A&W’s: The Independent. It’s true – for the first time since 2008 we’re back in print.

“Why?” you might ask, as a faithful reader of us on the web.

Though we have attracted a dedicated and respectably-sized readership over the past ten months, it remains true that many out there simply don’t know about us yet.

And so we thought that the best way to catch people’s attention was to plaster the streets with our masthead once again – and give them a taste of the excellent work our columnists and writers have been doing in 2011.

So if you’re out and about, keep an eye for us. But if you can’t, as with all (well, most!) of our print editions, you can find it archived online here, where you can view and actually flip through the full paper in an interactive format.

We would like to thank all of our contributors and advertisers for helping make this happen!
