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.
I allowed the first issue to be directed by the passions of my contributors. Three examples: Years ago, Robert Reid told me about his love for his home state of Oklahoma, so I asked him to write about it; I visited Hong Kong and Lee Cobaj showed me all these amazing, weird corners of Causeway Bay, her home neighbourhood, so I asked her to write a guide to it; I knew how much Troy Litten adores documenting unsung corners of the former Soviet Union, so we built an itinerary around one such corner and I wrote about it and he photographed it.
