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 08 takes you to Lima, Peru.
In this issue:
Visit nighttime street carts slinging anticuchos, sizzling beef heart skewers with roots in Quechua tradition and sixteenth century slavery
