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 this biannual mag brings a different different city to life, exploring the culture through its food, history and community. With many local writers, photographers and illustrators, you are immersed in the sights, sounds, smells and creative spirit of each city. Issue 01 takes you to Istanbul.
"The city has been shaped and reshaped by a unique mix of migrant cultures, spanning from Eastern Europe to North Africa and the Middle East...You'll be led through the beautiful winding streets of Istanbul by some of the city's finest artists, musicians, chefs, writers, and historians...into Istanbul's near and distant pasts."
