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.
This volume marks a breakthrough into double-digits.
To celebrate this milestone, we’ve been working on giving the magazine a complete refresh; a new design, a new format, and a new approach to the content which uses the subject of beer as a jumping-off point for a wider range of stories, which reflect the diverse interests of our readers.
With a renewed editorial direction, it only seemed natural to challenge ourselves with the design as well. The new creative direction attempts to maintain some of the familiar elements of the magazine, whilst allowing us to explore a more confident visual style.
Since launching in 2014, we’ve seen the brewing scene develop and grow into one of the most exciting, innovative and dynamic industries. Few places better encapsulate this progressive culture than Brighton, a town which has, in recent years, nurtured one of the UK’s most diverse, inclusive and creative brewing scenes. We’re incredibly proud to present the city and surrounding areas as the theme for this issue.
