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.
Celebrate the words and stories of women with the Dear Damsels Annual 2020
Bringing together some of our favourite pieces of the past twelve months, the DD Annual 2020 is a joyous, creative, heartfelt collection of writing by women, as well as a look back over a year spent in the company of DD.
Full of personal essays, short stories, poetry and everything in between, this print issue also contains original photography and illustration. It’s our way of celebrating the Dear Damsels collective, and we hope you love reading it as much as we loved making it.
This year, our utterly perfect cover illustration is byAlice L Clark(@alicelclark) and we’re delighted to have teamed up withBath Spa Illustration Society(@bathspaillsoc) once again, who have provided beautiful internal illustrations. This is our biggest and best Annual yet – don’t miss it!
