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.
In our thirteenth issue of Ethos, we celebrate the businesses making 2020 a better year. It’s jam-packed with ideas, innovation and inspiration, sustainable picks and stories about good businesses thriving in challenging times.
Our cover star Payntermakes beautiful limited-edition jackets. Their way of working means there is zero waste, their jackets are woven on demand and made-to-order, selling out in minutes. We talk to Daianna Karaian, co-founder ofToday Do This, a business that helps people start the change they want to see in the world.
We take a look at how Nike is making a big impact in Liverpool. A new 100% recyclable kit for the newly-crowned English champions and support for Liverpool’s community clubs. We talk about money, from our cashless society to fin-novation for business. And, we explore the communities and localisms that got a lift from lockdown.
We spend 24 hours in Moscow, head to Scotland with Finisterre to visit their Bowmont Merino sheep and travel to the Nordic countries for some Danish designs.
