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.
Each issue of a Dance Magis inspired by a dance flow and explores a universe of imaginaries, histories, rituals, mythologies, and narratives related to and inspired by that flow.
Inspired by the Sufi whirling practice, issue 01 theme is: Transcendence. In its exploration of the human instinct to go beyond material reality and personal limitations, the Transcendence issuetakes the reader on a journey of Sufi tales, deity-possession lived-experiences in Ghanian rituals, Ketamine-induced trances in Techno nightclubs, the seekings of a yoga teacher, innocent childhood games of whirling-until-fainting in Iceland, among other experiences, stories and places.
