We are Pics & Ink - a new way of buying interesting and unusual magazines, the type most people can’t find in their local newsagent.
The internet is great, it means we can access pretty much anything from pretty much anywhere. Magazines have yet to benefit from this. We aren’t about reading magazines online because we really like the touch, smell and beauty of great paper.
So let us be your guide through the world of independent magazines. We’ll tell you about them, show you a few pages, then we will pack them up very carefully and post them to your door.
RENEW How to thrive in winter. Botanical pick-me-ups & vegan comfort food. Ethical spending. Citrussy cooking. Soups and snacks for the trail. How to make a time capsule. Cold weather salves.When snowdrops unfurl their green shoots in winter, we should see it as a sign; they have spent the summer and autumn replenishing their stores in order to burst forth, renewed and ready for the new year.
January feels less a time for decisions, resolutions and big changes, than for looking ahead and letting those hopes and dreams be spoken out loud. If your own stores are not feeling as topped up as our snowdrops, this month is good for some quiet R&R.
Embrace a winter festival or two, go on a field trip to appreciate your home town, drop everything for a snow day, or cheer up yourself and your kitchen with some citrussy projects. Fresh ideas are always a good way to start the year.
