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.
Our fourth issue is our most open-ended yet, with riffs on theLonely Planet Guide to Experimental Travel, a package holiday feature by Hilary Bown, an essay by Rowena Mondiwa on travelling as a Third Culture Kid, and Zora O’Neill’s explorations of the northwestern Greek region of Zagori, our longest feature to date.
In addition, find Hong Kong, Adelaide, and San Juan lists, reviews of Piemonte’sgrignolino, food on Yap, and Amman’s Duke’s Diwan, and a cab ride across Windhoek. Other features include a lovingly curated guide to Delhi by Meher Varma, an essay on the far-flung Olympic Peninsula by Pam Mandel, a short guide to Marseille’s Saint-Victor by Mary Novakovich, and photos essays on Miami (Ramón Iriarte) and Varna (Katerina Shosheva). Strewn throughout, as in the third issue: a set of scents described by certified sommelier Annie B. Shapero. On the cover, a photograph of Varna by Katerina Shosheva.
