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.
The first edition of Elementum explores the theme of Calling. Published August 2016.
We set sail on untameable oceans that renew the love of home, and revisit the enduring myth of the Mermaid of Zennor. We take to the trail in the company of Yosemite National Park’s black bears, and a writer recalls how the inspiration for a story was heard within a silent landscape. We reflect on the enduring song of the humpback whale, and a musician reveals how a long-dormant vocation was birthed. These and other stories will be published alongside beautiful and interpretative images from artists, illustrators and photographers.
Edition One is 144 pages, limp notch bound for durability and printed in full colour on FSC-approved uncoated paper.
