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.
Producing an issue of Little White Lies under lockdown conditions has been a challenging and exciting task, a little like completing a Rubix cube against the clock while blindfolded and whistling ‘Frère Jacques’ on a loop. Okay, maybe not that tough. With cinemas closed, release schedules obliterated, the film industry on furlough and most people rightly squirrelling away in their homes to safeguard from viral infection, it meant that the option of making what you might see as a “regular” issue of the magazine was not there to be taken.
Yet necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention, and so the LWLies brain trust rubbed their heads together over a video conferencing platform and came up with something a little different: an issue dedicated to the intersections between the worlds of food and the worlds of film.
